Ok, here goes....

This is my first attempt at blogging, and to be honest, I'm not sure what I'm doing! But I wanted to showcase some of the fun things I've been tinkering with. I hope it works.

A few years ago my kids' teacher inspired me to get sewing when she showed the class the fabric Christmas bags she's been making for her family for years.

Since then my dear friend Melissa has so patiently tutored me through buying the right sewing machine, explaining sewing terminology, convincing me to read the instruction manuals and basic, regular middle of the night advice (check out her amazing work at http://lundendesigns.com/blog/).

So.... this is an iPad bag for my Stepmother.

I love these fabrics together! It's fun & fresh, yet mature enough for an adult.

I gave the outer fabric a thick interfacing both for form and for protection for her iPad.

As always, I've made the strap long enough so you can carry it messenger style across your shoulder. I love this technique because I always need my hands free for other things.

I hope she likes it!
