If you follow my blog, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth. Nope, still here. I finished up my student teaching this spring, managed to snag my first ever teaching job for the fall, and am in the process of building a new house. Life is crazy, but I wouldn't want it any other way! With a few months off before I start my new job, I am back at the sewing machine again and picking up some new skills. I am attempting to expand my horizons a little with some sewing projects other than quilts. I love bags because not only are they cute but practical too and great for organizing all the junk that somehow magically accumulates on my bedroom dresser. This was my first experience putting in zippers, and it was much easier than I expected. I didn't even have to use my seam ripper.
