Sewing is one of my favorite hobbies. I cannot say that I'm extremely good in it, but I enjoy pulling some threads through my sewing machine every now and then. Not only is it an opportunity to make whatever clothing item you want, but it also requires a creativity process, which is my favorite part.
Sewing is one of those activities, which needs full attention, concentration and preciseness, therefore I know that I have to dedicate a whole day (can be a couple of hours, depending on the project) if I want to sew something new. What I admire the most about it is that I have to dive completely into it, it's a great way to switch off all of the thoughts about the rest of the world for a couple of hours and spend them just with your own mind.
One of the first things, which I learned how to sew are bags. I haven't made one in a while, so I thought, with the approaching summer it would be nice to have a new, simple tote bag. Since I go shopping to farmers market regurarly, I can never get enough of those bags!
This is how my new bag looks like, if you want to see a short time lapse of me making it, then watch the video below!
