When my mother in law gave me my beloved Husqvarna sewing machine a couple Christmas's ago, I was eager to try it out right away. I made this bag out of my left over fabric from my living room curtains. The bag is not the best quality, as I am not the best seamstress.
But I put my bag to good use anyway. It's my "inspirational magazine holder" in my craft room now. I often flip through my favorite magazines for musings when I have "crafter's block".
If you have a purse or bag that you can't throw away but you really don't want to use out in public either - find something creative to do with it. Keeping things like this stuffed away in closets is a Lark & Lola no-no!
