Wow! I never knew sewing could be so much fun! I was so motivated by finishing my first (machine) sewing project ever that I decided to make another and improve on what I had learned. I changed the dimensions a bit (3 1/2 x 4 1/2 x 7) so that the bag was wider than it was tall, remembered to put in little zipper pull tabs, and ironed each seam as I went so that it would have that “finished” quality. Guess what? I did not make any mistakes this time! Even on the inside the french seams are all neat and pretty! Now I have an insatiable desire to make more, more, more!
