New Found Skill

What do you think of this simple pencil case?  I'm pretty sure everyone would think nothing as it is just a pencil case.  To me it is something special, simply because I sew it myself on my first attempt on sewing.  
It may look like a simple pencil case but getting it done especially the zip was really giving me a headache.  I did my own way which I know it is wrong but I get the job done.  Will definitely find out more on how to get the zip right the next attempt.
Sewing is totally a whole new world for me and I'm still learning and trying to attempt to do something with it.  There are a few things that I would like to try my hands on with the sewing machine, so just stay tune in the near future and see what I could achieve with my new found skill.

sewing is very fun, u can decide on the fabric u want to use, the design u want to make, the size you want.

I love loves pouches and bags alot. Especially there have beautiful linning when you open the zip of the pouch

Ken said...

hahaha but the hardest part was to sew the zipper. I just don't know how i manage to sew it on?

yoon see said...

At least you know what to tell others, that's giving instructions, opinions.....
Rather that no opinion:(
I have just finished one tag,
sorry...really taking some time to finish.

Thx for the link. The hardest part was to sew the other side of the zipper which it seems impossible and it didn't really show. Probably I'll have to read through the whole thing :)
