That said it is still new and I am taking things slow and steady so as not to confuse myself. So lots of little simple projects it is!
So while practicing on the machine I found myself irritated by the many charger wires gathering next to our computer. So I decided to sew some little storage pots to hold all those annoying things that have no place to go. I learnt this technique from a sewing evening I go along to on Wednesdays.
I needed a reasonably strong fabric and a lovely friend recently gave me her old flared jeans. Fabulously wide and fabulously funky! A true ode to our 15 year old selves and the fabric is perfect for what I needed.
Now the jean leg is already a tube so I just cut it to the length I wanted. I then did the same with the lining fabric. I then sewed down the two edge seams of the lining to create the same tube as with the denim,
On the base of your fabric cut two squares out from each corner as below.
