So related to lesson 1 I tried things to hide the hideous rats nests that I created with my bobbin threads (obviously this was easier than fixing the problem!). Lining something completely hid those threads so my next project was a fully lined purse. This was one of my early favorites. One of the first things that I made that I really liked and used.
I was really happy with the outside and got compliments on it
The inside lining hid all of those awful balls of thread from the bobbin
However, the buttonhole left something to be desired!
I learned about other tricks like bias tape and tucked hems that could hide my poor stitching skills until I could improve them!
