I was instantly distracted by this bag pattern, and decided I must have one, like NOW.
Sara used ribbons on her bag (which I have to honestly say, I don't care for), Just never been into ribbons, they don't trick my trigger at all. However, I loved the shape of this bag and the construction looked pretty simple. So, I had to make one, QAYG style. I tweaked the handles a little so I didn't have to use handle panels over my quilting. I also used a snap closure rather than the zipper again just because I had some extra bulk with the quilting. And a zipper pocket inside, because I love those things! It turned out so cute!! I used a bunch of purples from my Pink Castle January Stash Stack and I love it! You can see from the inside picture that this bag is already in use. The bag is very easy to put together and definitely beginner friendly.
And a super cute scrappy valentine pouch for the kindergarten "secret pal" Created from my own brain! Pretty proud, made it while the little guy napped. I'm making a few more, then I will attempt to post my first tutorial. Yippeee! I love a good tutorial, so much fun info out in the world. Here's the gift for Erica
So not a terribly productive week, but got a few fun projects done and started a Park West Bag with super cute love birds from Michael Miller. Bonus, I bought no fabric this week! Go me!!
