New projects!

Hello my Friends!! My, why does this weekend feel like it was too short???? I wish it was always mandatory to have three day weekends. I am very excited to share my new projects with you. This past Thursday, I purchased my very own sewing machine. I can't express how excited I was.. That I got right to it and started working on a few little projects. Soo I just wanted to share with you...  

Yes, I know it's "CARS" theme... Might just give it
to my son for his color pencils and markers..

But I will admit it does make a good makeup brush roll...


Lol!! I am a car fanatic.... =) Like the colors I used..

My second sewing project.. 6 x 9 inch pouch...


Lined it with black fabric and used a red 9inch zipper...

Thanks Ladies for your wonderful comments!!

@YURI: Thanks for the comment, Believe it or not I had already bought the sewing machine before but decided to hold off and so I had returned it. This time around it went on sale again at JoAnns for $99 bucks so I purchased it and this time I actually opened the box and used it.. I had been missing out on so much stuff I can create with this machine.. =) Well I hope you get to get one soon..

@ADRI: Thanks Adri, pre-order ;) I hope to be up and running... SOON!!! I need to order some clothes labels for my stuff.. Pre-orders are always welcome.. if you have a choice of fabric let me know.. =)

@TRACI: Thank you so much!! I will be posting my new creations soon.. Stay tooned!! lol!!

@Yuri, I was really scared to sew.. my mom is a natural at this sewing stuff so I just decided to go with it.. and now I am hooked!! lol!! TRUST Me I am a beginner.too I was getting a bit frustraded because I couldn't get the thread to pull up from the bobin.. But now we are good friends with my SINGER SIMPLE SEWING MACHINE!!
