My 365 Photo A Day Project – Day 10 – Making A Gusset

Today’s pic is of Ben watching Nana make a gusset on a tote bag


I was using my trusty sewing machine that I have had since around 8th grade.  I’m blessed that my parents bought me a machine as I have really enjoyed making things over the years.

The current project that I am making are some simple tote bags made from placemats.  I purchased several and I was practicing on one to make sure I remembered how to make a gusset.  Want to see how it’s looking so far?  Well, here it is!

I of course need to add handles or straps of some sort and maybe some other decorative embellishments but I like how it’s coming along so far. 

What did you do today?

Stay awesome!! ~lisa
