New Bag

Lots happening in the sewing room this week - took me a while to take pictures though! I whipped this up when I got tired of pawing through my mess of a purse looking for my cell phone, keys or wallet at key moments. I showed it to my husband. "You made that?" he asked in what seemed to be disbelief. "It looks professional!" Why... thanks, honey.

The butterflies are from a vintage pillowcase. The rest is scraps from prior sewing projects, mostly linen. If I was going to do it again (and you bet I will) I will use interfacing on the fabric for the main body and lining, and I'll add a pocket in the back for my planner. But I'm thrilled. It has lots of pockets. I know where my lip gloss is. There's place for pens. My Ipod is safe. I feel so...satisfied.

I love it - what pattern did you use? I'm forever loosing things in my purse too. If you didn't use a pattern - could you do a tutorial on making a similar one???

I love seeing what people can do with scraps and a good imagination. You inspire me!

If you were to design the perfect "dream" diaper bag, what would it look like? With your talent, I bet you could make $$ creating all kinds of bags. I posed that very question at Diaper Bag Central, too, and I'm anxious to hear responses.

I love the butterflies. So whimsical and bright.
