Sewing with "baby steps"

When my friend came over on Tuesday to finish her tote bag, I pinned the straps to the yoke of the New Look 6828 top I'm working on. Yesterday I sewed that seam and removed the pins. Today I turned the yoke and basted the raw edges together. Sewing just a little bit at a time is what I meant by "baby steps."

DH is starting a web site business on the side, since his hours were cut back on his day job. He wants me to make him a little zippered tote bag so he can carry his business stuff around - camera, mini-notebook, pen, and receipt pad. Today I rough-sketched the pattern, and cut out the fabric for a mock-up.

  1. Sounds like you are making progress. I haven't tried that New Look pattern yet so I can't wait to see how yours turns out.
