Horrible first try at a triple zip crossbody mini purse.  Suggestion: Don’t use knit.  Pain in the butt!  Glad I used scraps! Maybe I just really suck at knits.

Second pair of jeans hemmed. Much better. Did a double folded hem. With 3/8”.  I could have the hem a little closer to the inside fold. Ill try to do that next time. And I would like to get some better contrast thread.  Not sure if I should try to go over it twice to get thicker look or just leave it. Prob just leave it.  Pretty proud of myself.

My first pair of jeans hemmed.  With zipper foot with denim needle. No issues with the sewing machine on jeans but I’m not too thrilled with the look. I was hoping the original hem would turn out better. And I think I burned them a little with the iron.  That’s why I started with skinny jeans that would be hidden!

My first “job” for anyone else.  Pants for Julie needed 3 3/4” off. Finished the edge, folded it over about 1/2” and ironed both folds. I even replaced the pleats.

Goals

I have to stop shopping. The house is getting cluttered. Example - the dog does not need a treat launcher. My (vague) goals are:
1. stop buying tangible “wants” . Exception is purchases made w/gift cards but I’ve got to make them good.
2. Declutter, purge, dump, get rid of
3. Have a garage sale in Spring
