Chloe Grace Moretz took to her Twitter.com page on Thursday (07Jun12) to share her progress, tweeting, "Learning to sew for Carrie!! I learned 2 weeks of sewing in 2 hours! Made a tote (bag)."


The star also posted photos of herself hard at work with an industrial sewing machine, as well as a snap of the finished product.
