i am back! i have not blogged anything in quite some time. and i hope this time i make it worth the wait! i have been wanting to make a bag for myself. most things i make end up as gifts. but this i wanted to try out and thought i would make it for myself as a fun little thing to finish out the summer with. the only problem i had was that it took FOREVER to get to it! i had a baby quilt for a friend (and co-worker) of paul’s who just had their first baby. how exciting! so while i didn’t work on my bag, i instead was making this:
i really am happy with how that turned out. i needed a break from ‘quilt world’ though. so on to the before and after, shall we?
i really do love this little bag. it is perfect to toss in my keys, wallet and cell and go! my regular purse looked so ‘wintery’ so i will keep that thing and break it back out in the fall.
this bag really did not take long to make either. i cut it all out and started putting it together yesterday afternoon. i finished it this evening. i think i spent a total of maybe 4 hours on it. really not bad at all from start to finish with reading directions and all. want another look? how about the reverse??
so there you have it. made complete using pins, making pleats and pockets! i can’t wait to make some more of those. i am already thinking of the different colors i would want to use and all the people who would want one…how about you?? want one??
