I enjoy being home. And really enjoy being home when I can create something fun. So on this Labor Day holiday, I used a birthday gift to Hobby Lobby and bought some canvas, paint, thread, and zippers to make a zippered bag/clutch. I took an online workshop from Roben-Marie Smith, a fabulous artist whose art I LOVE. I watched the videos, then got busy on the project.
First I painted some canvas.
So here is my finished bag. I am super proud of it, since it has been ages since I've sewn anything other than hemming some curtains.
|This is the back of the bag.|
Now I'm off to attempt the second part of the workshop....making a journal with the other half of the canvas. Wish me luck!
