So, I've been working on a knitting/book bag for a while now and I finally finished it. Without my sewing machine. I ended up handstitching the most of the stupid thing cause my tension was CRAZY, nothing fixed it. :( SO, I soldiered on and my thumbs can tell that story.

Thanks, I just kinda fell into it while I was shopping my local thrift. It wasn't very expensive nor very difficult.
