New Bag

So I bought a bit of fabric to make a bag for my mom for mother's day. It came out pretty cute, I thought, and I was excited to give it to her. She seemed to like it, so I thought all was good.

Yesterday, I realized I didn't have a gift for bunco last night, and I didn't feel like going to buy anything, so I decided to use my leftover fabric from my mom's bag to make into my gift. Now I just have to apologize to my mom, because this bag came out so much better than hers... Sorry mom! If you want me to make yours better, I totally will.

I've been wanting to participate in amylouwho's Sew and Tell for a while now, but rarely have anything great to post. I'm excited today to actually have something to add. :)

Love it, and it totally would be mine today because I got a lower score than Mackenzie, but by the time I counted it, she was already picking out a gift, and I couldn't bring myself to take her turn. Anyways, it's adorable, great job, and thansk for coming and bringing the table and chairs, AND letting me use your vaccuum!

I love my bag just the way it is.

I love the pocket inside that is exactly the right size to hold my phone and my lip balm.

I love the fabric--color and texture.

I love the length of the strap--it hangs exactly where I like a purse to hang when it's hanging over my shoulder.

I love that it doesn't have a top or a closer, although version 2 is very stylish. If mine had a closer and a top, I would not be able to carry all of my crap as easily.

Mostly I love that you made it for me-me! Thank you sweet girl. xo

You're so crafty! I might need sewing lessons! My mom does quilts, and I've tried to make clothes for Bekah....but they turned out horribly so I gave up.

Man, I want to come play Bunco in your group! We only have crazy/weird gifts that no one would fight over. But I'd totally throw punches for this bag :o)
