the very first project I sewed with the machine was this super simple tshirt bag (tutorial here) made from one of H's too small shirts. He stole it not long after I finished sewing it and said we would use it for a picnic (despite the weather being uniformly grim over the last few days)
Ignore the mess look at my birthday present! a new Brother sewing machine! It hasn't got a name yet, and I'm pretty sure it will have to be a boy name as its a Brother sewing machine and that just doesn't lend well to being called a girl's name. Anyway I think I may be rambling here, too much coca-cola and twizzlers, but I had some awesome presents for my birthday but I'm happiest about having a new sewing machine that isn't a tinker toy.
I just finished sewing this little needle book with some scraps of Cath Kidston fabric and red felt but the light is so terrible that I gave up trying to get a picture of the inside of the needle book. As I already have 3 needle books I don't really need another one but its really too wonky to sell (and re opening my etsy shop for one item seems like a bit of a pain in the ass). I really enjoyed sewing the needle book, the new machine works beautifully and I cant wait to dream up the next project to sew on it.
