I decided to try out the basic swirl shown here:
So I drew out the design in a scribbler and filled the whole page. Then I prepped a practice sandwich. And finally prepped the fabric that I selected to make the bags....alright I will admit, I was starting to feel terrified at this moment. What about if I messed up and ruined the beautiful fabric that I picked out?! Deep breaths was my mantra at this moment. So I worked up the courage to finally start....then I couldn't stop....So I finished the full piece and was quite happy with myself. Sure there's mistakes and I had the top thread break on me a few times! But in the end, I was happy and proud of what I accomplished.
