Mamma's Got A Brand New Bag

>> Saturday, May 26, 2007

I know at least one person has been waiting out there for me to get on the stick and make the bag that I purchased this fabric for: (Yes, TKW,I mean you)


Well, today I got to finish it! I now have my new-toss-everything-in-and-go bag! And it will truly hold everything. I think it may even hold the new laptop! (Watch for the laptop slip case next!) It's roughly the size of a diaper bag. (Amanda... Did you get that? Can you say "custom diaper bag"?)
I gotta say that I am pretty darn proud of myself for this. Of course I didn't do it alone. No,that's not what I mean. I did sew it alone. But I had help... See, I just can't make that come out right. What I'm trying to say is:

Thanks to Randi who I turn to whenever I need help finding a great pattern. She can find anything. And she's soooo crafty. She even has an online shop: Simple Things. Go visit, say hi.

I also have to thank CreativeLittle Daisy, whose purse tutorial I used. (Thanks again Randi!) Want to make one? Just click "Tutorials"on the right hand side and scroll down. Because if I can do it anyone can.

Interior pocket...
Other interior pocket that has 3 sections so I can be organized!

Yep, I'm pretty darn impressed with myself.

well, I could comment on how cute the fabric is and all - but I am just going to claim complete blindness and deny ever seeing such cleverness because I might have to feel all guilty and stuff

OMG that is soooo cute. And guess what? I bought 4 pieces of fabric yesterday at JoAnn's to make little TOTE PURSES TOO! LOL.

I bet I don't finish mine until the summer of 2010 though. ;)

Very nice! Do you know about Etsy? You can sell your wares there... (I'm not crafty, but I've bought crafty stuff from crafters there)
