Creation of this bag was a long process, maybe, because it was my very first project in the USA.
Purchasing materials, creating patterns, then altering it, searching for fabrics and sewing supplies, threads, needles and, eventually, sewing machine - that's not an easy task (many thanks to amazon and American mail deliverers, who knock on the door twice and leave me a lot of packages).
Although all went really slow, here it is - beautiful, capacious, with tiny rivets that l installed by myself with a pink hammer at 10 pm in the evening (again, a lot of gratitude to my Chinese neighbors downstairs, who can stand it) and an autumn back-fabric, with leafs that's just fall down from the tree by the window.
P.S. I also want to thank the squirrels, that were looking in my window and inspiring me to finish the bag.
#sewphotohop ✂️MAKES ME HAPPY✂️......Learning something new- especially something requiring a needle & thread- makes my ❤️ happy. I'm just now learning the art of hand embroidery and I think I might love the supplies as much as the finished stitches 😉
I just made this adorable needle holder (@creativebug class taught by @dropcloth ) which is a great way to keep my needles organized👍
#sewphotohop - makes me happy. Making skirts and pants that fits me well. 😉
I will blog about the pencil skirt soon.
And I just got myself measured again and I'm slightly bigger than my previous size. 😒 ughh, blame it on the medicine. #aslongasimhealthy

I just wanted to show you a thrift store dress that I upcycled a bit - cut it short and added lace... But I can't freaking pose! 😂 I look like I'm trying to be fancy and all, but I'm legit just getting hair out of my face because wind just started blowing 😂 How do those fashion bloggers look so effortless?! 😣 I need to take a course in posing or something.
