I am ready to make a ditty bag!

The first project in the Sailmaker’s Apprentice is to make a ditty bag. After contemplating if I should go fetch all the products separately, I decided to splurge on the Sailrite ditty bag kit. I also acquired a roping palm to assist me in sewing my ditty bag, it was not cheap! Our fearless leader on our sail repair team, let me borrow a pattern to make it even easier for me to get started. I love hand sewing, lets see if I love hand sewing with thick thread and canvas!

So what is a ditty bag? Well Google defines it as “a receptacle for odds and ends, especially one used by sailors or fishermen”…
