Seriously.... I don't think I've gotten this much sewing done in one week since Cael was born. Sure, I've made diapers and a few pieces of clothing for the kids. But, nothing and I mean nothing like this. My new machine just buzzed. It sews like a dream. And these two bags are proof of that.
Early this week I decided it was time to stop the insane amount of "Spring" cleaning that I've been doing and sew myself a new purse. My "me" purse is about to loose a strap. I looked and looked for a pattern that I liked. I decided on this one. The Wasp Bag. I was hopping that it would be small enough for my purse, but large enough to throw a few diapers and baby necessities in when going out for quick trips.
this pattern. For the fabrics I decided to go bold. To use something that I normally wouldn't. I've had these fabrics in the house for a few years now. They are both heavy weight metalic quilting cottons. I actually have this same pattern in a baby blue, light sage green, and a purply fuscia. I used some plain ol' white for the interior as I had nothing that co-ordinated good enough. It'll make it easy to see inside.
