Hello, I Heart Readers! The first day of spring has passed, and I'm planning my projects for the next few weeks! If you all haven't dusted off your sewing machines yet this year, I have a few very simple organizing projects that will also get you familiar with your sewing machine. Each of these 5 bag projects is just a teensy bit more advanced than one that comes before, but any of them can be done by a beginner.
Duffle bags are great for overnights or sports gear storage. To be honest, I've always been too intimidated to sew one myself until I saw A Jennuine Life's super simple version. Her design just requires a circle, a rectangle and some trim. I'm looking forward to making a few to keep our frisbees, kickballs, and sand toys from rolling around in our trunk all spring.
"I'm Palak-- a slightly sleep deprived mom who has loved sewing, knitting and crochet for her whole life. When I’m not chasing after my two rambunctious kids, or sitting behind my sewing machine, I write about my DIY exploits at my blog, Make It Handmade. I also own Sewistry, a site dedicated to stretching our sewing dollars with money saving projects, product review and buying guides. Although organizing doesn’t come naturally to me, I’ve been inspired by Jen and her blog to find the joy in making my home beautiful and functional. I’m transforming my home one room at a time and using my sewing machine every chance I get! I’m simply elated to be able share sewing projects for your home as part of the IHeart team! "
