Wow! I did it!

I know pride is a terrible sin but this time,  but I just can't stop admiring my work and being proud of what I accomplished. I can't even wipe the grin off my face 'cause I'm just so tickled!

Martha Stewart, you might want to watch out behind you.  I'm giving you a run for your money.

Actually, I'd never catch up to Martha Stewart.  This project would be something she could do in her sleep.

But for me, somone who never was very interested in sewing, this Savanna Bag project was huge.  It took me all day (about 6 hours non stop).  I actually used my sewing machine and NOT my hot glue gun!

Angie made a bag like this HERE, and she did a great video for it.  I watched it completely first then would go back once in a while when I was at the next step.

The machine I used is a tiny little Janome mini but it worked great.  A couple of times I thought it might not sew through some of the layers but it persevered just fine.

I used my Big Shot and the clear square scallop die to cut out the fabric. And let me tell you, it was so much easier to cut the fabric that way than to use my scissors!
