Just a quick post this evening on my finish for the day: a Tsuru Two Zip Hipster. This fabulous pattern by Erin Erickson of Dog Under My Desk can be purchased here, and I highly recommend that you do so. It's a great little purse, so sturdy and full of places to stuff things in a hurry, as I'm always doing.
My only wish is that it were just a teensy bit larger -- being a mom, I'm still carrying half the universe around in my bag, and I had to cram pretty hard to get it all inside this one. Though I'm loathe to give up my Zakka Style wallet which I adore, I may have to downsize to a smaller version if there's still going to be room in this bag for my sunglasses to breathe.
Both prints are from Rashida Coleman Hale's brilliant new collection Tsuru. The outside is 1000 Cranes in cerulean, and the lining is Of a Feather in ivory. The colors and prints are skipping past spring and heading right into summer for me today. I can absolutely see myself taking this bag on all our day trips with the kids once June arrives.
I wanted you to get a feel for the size of this bag, so I had my husband snap a quick photo as we were headed out the door to Five Guy Burgers and Bunny's Tae Kwon Do class. Looking at this picture, all I can think is that it just goes to show the difference that sewing has made in my life. I may still forget to put on makeup and jewelry, and I may wear t-shirts and jeans almost every day of the week, but at least I can carry a gorgeous bag with me wherever I go...
Linking up to Fabric Tuesday.
