I don't know why I can't get my head around sewing, but I can't. I am completely intimidated by the process. I was meant to be having an art date with a friend today. When he had to cancel I thought I would have a go at a "simple" tote bag. That's right "simple". Anyway, the photo below is as far as I got.
I can't even work out how to cut out a straight 33" x 14" panel. Luckily for me, Reenie-Su offered to give me some sewing lessons. I'm off to e-mail her and say yes please.
