Last week I spent three days (yes, 3!) creating a new tote bag. I drafted a pattern and sewed. I finally finished after three days.
I learned several things making this tote bag:
First, I enjoyed making a larger project after making so many smaller ones.
Second, tote bags take so much time to make that I really need to concentrate on smaller projects right now.
Third, taking my time is essential to achieving near perfection. I would describe myself as a perfectionist. Everything has to be just so. Creating a new pattern takes time to develop. It’s okay to spend more time working out the details.
All in all, I’m proud of my new creation. It’s a simple bag with a snap closure and a pocket inside.
What have you been creating?
