Reversible tote bag

Another project I took on, following a tutorial on Craftster: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=91070.0

The tutorial is by gloriana and her blog can be reached at this address: http://amingledyarn.wordpress.com/

It’s a reversible tote bag =)

I found the tutorial to be very helpful and detailled – exactely what you need when you’re just getting started with sewing.

Here’s my result:

Edit: You might have already guessed it – I used fabrics by Ikea… 😉

Big plans

This weekend I am so busy I sadly won’t have the time to spare to get out my sewing machine and start a new project. But with all these great tutorials around I have already composed a list of future projects I hope to realize soon. And as we all know, Christmas is also coming up sooner or later. Better start now… 😉

Projects I’d love to get my hands on:

tiny happy: shoulder bag

Oh, and check out this site which features wonderful diy projects. It just makes me want to refurnish my flat, reuse old furniture, create decorative items…

One more thing:

I’ve been thinking for a long time about doing my first roast chicken as I have never tackled one of those before. I found this recipe that is labeled “foolproof” and might just be the one for me. 😉

I’ll let you know if it worked for me too once I get the time and the occasion to try it out.
