Friendship Bag

So I tried to make Rachel's Friendship bag. It sort of turned out. Somewhere, somehow my measurements were off. I also think I discovered that all this time I haven't been actually doing a 1/4 inch seam. It's off just a hair. I thought this whole time I'd been using a 1/4 inch foot on my machine, and it's not! See...told you I'm new to all this sewing business! So I ordered a 1/4" foot for my machine. Now maybe, I won't have such a hard time! But the bag was so fun, easy and cute. I'm going to make more, my 5 year old daughter wants a "bright pink and black" one. This one I'm going to fill with candy for my sister. I don't think she'll mind the mistakes!


  1. Jennie, your bag looks great. It doesn't matter if you were abit out in measurements, patterns are made to be adjusted and hey, its called a friendship bag and friends never worry.
    Nice blog also. Keep up the great work.

  2. Good work!!! Maybe I'll give that bag a try! :)

  3. That's the best thing about sisters.... I think you did a great job!


I love hearing from you...so comment away!
