It's finished!!!

Remember this sneak peek picture from last week?
I am finally done!!! I love how it turned out. I bought the fabric and pattern for this bag like 4 or 5 months ago and was to chicken to make it. Last week I guess I got adventurous and decided to give it a try. I usually try and stick to quilts and things that are not 3 dimensional, but I'm so glad I gave this one a try. I'm going to be using as a "church" bag, I filled it with all sorts of things to try and keep my children happy and me sane during church!


I love the sides of it. It has these cute little ties to make it a little skinnier or a little wider. And inside it has eight pockets, perfect for crayons, diaper wipes, cell phones, ipods whatever. I still need to find the perfect button for the little loop closure. I had so much fun sewing this bag I decided to make another.`

This one will be up on my etsy site, so if your interested go to my side bar and check it out.

I think it would be perfect for a diaper bag, or craft bag or purse or whatever.



By the way, I can't take credit for the jewelry over in my Etsy site. My twin sister made it all and everything is so cute.

you did a great job. here's an idea for the perfect button: do a covered button. so easy and you won't have to worry about whether it "goes" with the fabric or not. way to step out of your comfort zone.

That bag turned out fabulous! Seriously, it hurts me it's to cute!!! I wish I had those kind of patience but I have one of those hate-hate relationships with my sewing machine (I still use it though).

I bet that was snatched of Etsy in a hurry!

So cute! I just sewed my first purses before Christmas for gifts for my mom and best friend. I was excited with how well they turned out on my first try.
