Sewing Projects

I got a craigslist $75 1960s sewing machine and I LOVE it!

My first projects, just to get the feel of the thing and learn to make button holes (!!!) were these gift bags.  I made them from old jeans, remnants, ribbon I had on hand, and buttons I had in my grandmother's sewing basket.  The theory is to stop wasting paper every year, make wrapping a little more stress-free, and maybe even save the planet a little bit.  Hubs is modeling the big one (tee hee).

It's fleece, ribbon, and some buttons.

This one is the old jeans:

And this is Shiloh telling me what she thought of it all:
