My New Spring Bag!

After a few missteps, I finally finished my spring bag! As seen in my previous posts, my most recent try ended up being a tote. In fact I have started using it as a sewing tote, when I need to carry my sewing materials. It has already become a great use to me!

Anyway, back to the new bag. I drew a bag out in my little notebook, made a pattern from the drawing and tweeked my designs a bit and the bag was born. I love the brown and blue combination (although this blue is a little on the green side, but I loved the pattern). The tweek of the bag came when I was out shopping with my Gram. I was looking at a bag and I loved the big pocket on the front, so I decided to go that route. I'm very happy that I went that direction. Added the cute little brown bow and Voila, SPRING BAG! I also added two inside pockets inside because you can never have enough pockets.
The bag is finished, now I have another one to make for a friend. I also have one more small project to finish for my nephew/godson. Soon I will post a blog on all the baby gifts I made. I have twin nephews and a neice all being baptized in the next two weeks.

Can't wait to see what I start to work on next.
