I have decided to start a home sewing project in my store room. Rather than having the sewing machine sit in the corner and do nothing, it will be put to good use making some small projects I have been thinking for a while. This is my first attempt. A satchel for work.
I have been carrying thin fabric shopping bags to carry the bunch of keys and tools necessary for daily work. I go through about 1 shopping bag every week. I needed a satchel that is made of a tougher fabric with a zippered section to hold me phones. A quick stop at the local craft store for some nylon thread, size 5 YKK zippers and a roll of black ribbon is all I needed to complete this simple home sewing project.
I think I did quite well on my first home sewing project. I can’t say that the final product is aesthetically pleasing but the idea of having made something that I will put to good use really does satisfy the soul.
Frankly, this home sewn satchel isn’t all that difficult to do. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the hours seems to zoom by really fast. I may up the ante and see what else I can make in this new section of ‘home sewing project’. Perhaps some simple home sewn day pack that I have been thinking of getting custom made. Stoked!
