One of my favorite crafts is sewing. Growing up in the 70s, I began sewing by hand as a young girl. Now I can successfully sew all sorts of craft projects with a sewing machine. What did I sew as a young girl? You guessed it! I sewed doll clothes and made related things. Here you can see some of my more recent doll clothing and furniture designs. I will show you beginner-level sewing projects like my simple step-by-step drawstring bag. You will also get to see some of my denim handbag designs. These beauties make wonderful gifts to share with others. Best of all, they are affordable to make and look very nice!
