When I was brainstorming ideas for the bag making skill challenge for Learn More, Sew More, the first maker who came to mind was Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness. Her bags also look “handmade” and not necessary “homemade”. They are trendy and can be made from supplies you can normally find at a craft store. Aside from her superb bags, her blog and instagram feed have always felt fun to me. She inspires me with her sewing skills and productivity. I am very fortunate to have her as my first guest on the podcast!
– Sara’s fabric line, Jungle Avenue
– Sara’s bag book, Big City Bags
– Book recommendation:
– “Say yes to me”. It may mean you have to say no to others a lot but you are always taking care of yourself.
