I enjoy sewing a great deal but lately I have been making a lot of the same thing. I am not tired of making these messenger bags but I do like a bit of variety. I am happy to say I have now officially added piping to my arsenal of sewing skills.
I have a great sewing book by DK - The Complete Book of Sewing. I always refer to it when I am doing something new or tricky. It's a beautiful hardcover book with glossy photos of everything you ever wanted to know about sewing and fabric.
