My daughter is taking a sewing class. She is going to learn to sew. :) I think she'll learn more that way. I took a sewing Home Ec. class in Jr. High.....I hated every minute of it. Yes, it was a shock to many when, out of the blue, I caught a sewing bug a some years ago.
I made her this boxy bag to store and carry her sewing supplies.
I added a handle. I just cut a 6" x 10" piece of red canvas. I folded/pressed it in half, then opened it up and pressed both edges into the center. I edge stitched down both sides. I pinned it in place 1" on each side of the center of the zipper. Then stitched the sides.
