Last week I took a break from the stock-the-inventory-closet sewing and made myself this sweet new bag!
The pattern is from V and Co. and is super simple and fun to make. There aren’t even pattern pieces – you just cut it all out with your rotary cutter and it sews up in no time!
This is a serious bag, not a dainty purse. On Sunday it happily held my usual purse stuff, two kiddo jackets, an American Girl doll, a folder full of paper, my big camera, and a box of Rice Krispie treats (it was a party, what can I say?). It’s that handy size for when your kids are too old to require a diaper bag but you still end up hauling around half your house.
You should also head on over to Vanessa’s blog – it’s full of fun sewing projects and loads of inspiration. It’s definitely one of my faves.
I’m not the only one getting something new around here. Remember the awesome chenille blanket I mentioned in last weekend’s Weekend Links? I started one for the little guy! Poor thing – being a second child to a busy mom means he hardly has any handmade stuff, so I’m excited to finish this up for him.
I’m following the tutorial from Aesthetic Nest that was linked to on Living With Punks. So far it’s going surprisingly quickly given that I’m not a great quilter and it is A LOT of quilting. You better believe I’ll be showing pictures of this one when it’s done.
What are you guys up to? Any new fun projects? Want to tempt me with another project for myself?
