Recently, I bought Bend the Rules Sewing (Potter Craft, 2007) by Amy Karol, and I’m in love! I plan to make quite a few of the projects in this great book! If you’re a beginning or intermediate sewer, I strongly recommend this book! Even if you’re an old pro, it might be worth taking a look at because there are some really cool and cute projects in here!
This week, I embarked on my first really big sewing project since high school! I made the Pleated Beauty Handbag from Bend the Rules Sewing. I’m really happy with the way it turned out, but now that it’s done I realize how big it is! Since I haven’t carried a purse in ages, and I no longer need a diaper bag, I don’t have enough stuff to fill it up! I guess I’ll have to make another bag. Darn! (he he he)
