No, I did not get my machine back from the shop. My friend let me borrow her sewing machine so I didn't go completely crazy. Although, I I may be going slightly crazy over this cutie over this cutie of a messenger bag that I cranked out. I love this Echino fabric! I did not use a pattern, I totally winged this one. There are a couple of things that I will do differently when I make another, overall, I am thrilled with this one!
