My First Bag


I'm pretty excited today because I finished my first bag this afternoon. It's nothing fancy, but I'm awfully happy about it. I used this tutorial on Sew, Mama, Sew for a summer reading bag by Mo Bedell. I left off the library friendly details that the original calls for and kept it very simple. Along with the Heather Ross fabric, I used a green lattice print that I found in the remnant bin at Joann's and a strip of grey fabric featuring the darling turtles from Little Apples by Aneela Hoey for the underside of the strap.


My daughter was so excited to try the bag on, and she's been walking around with her friends strapped to her side ever since I finished it. She's happy, Rapunzel looks happy, and I'm absolutely thrilled.


Linking up to Work in Progress Wednesday!
