My First Craft It Forward!

Remember my Craft It Forward post? Well, I was finally able to finish and give away my first project.

I decided for my projects, that I didn't want to do something scrapbooking related - that would be expected. Instead, I pulled out my sewing machine and decided to try making a cute tote bag! I made up my own pattern and bought some really bright canvas material when I was home in Michigan a couple of months ago.

This is my finished tote and Lynn W. was the (I have to say - very happy!) recipient.

Lynn had lent me some Jodi Picoult books and when I returned them I put them in this tote. I even gave her a thank-you card that I made!

It feels good to be crafting in different ways and it feels good to give something I made to a special friend. I am looking forward to deciding what my next Craft It Forward will be! It could be another tote - or possibly something different. Hmmm....
