I made a bag, finally! :D

So, last night I was going through my Reader and ran across the post by Karen, at My Favourite Things. She had bag eye candy to show off. And I just was so excited when I read her post! I have been buying fabric to make bags for the past few months and just have not done anything with it. There was a great tutorial for a cute bag too. So I copied the list off, and plan to go and get the materials I need to make one :) I made a small bag for my son last night, just kind of winged it. It isn’t perfect, but I think it turned out pretty cute. My husband says it is kinda girly with the polk-a-dots, but I disagree, for there isn’t any “girly” fabric on it! :D I am making my daughter one next with pink polk-a-dot fabrics. So there :P

I went out to dinner with my girlfriends after I had made this little bag, and when I got home I started stitching a bit. I made some good progress on The Four Seasons. I know I have other things I must be doing this month, but I just can’t! I want to work on The Four Seasons, so while I am in such a mood to work on it, I had better right? :) I got a lot more of the holly done on it. There are so many color changes in this chart, it’s crazy. That is why it’s so pretty though, so I carry on.

The Blue Angels are in town for an air show, and they’ve been flying over my work yesterday and today practicing. We plan on going to the air show tomorrow, I can’t wait! I love air shows :D The Blue Angels are just so loud, it’s amazing to me. The kids are just as excited to go too, so it should be a fun day. I hope you all have a really nice weekend, be sure and get lots of fun in of course before we all have to go back to work :D

Very sweet little bag and your WIP is gorgeous! Hmm, I'm not seeing any counter on your blog though. I'm wondering if its one for your eyes only?

Have a great weekend!

Oh, I just love the bag you made. The colors are wonderful ;)

The bag is very cute! I think you should stitch on whatever is calling :). I love jets. My father is a retired Air Force air traffic controller so we always lived on bases with flight lines. I've been to more than my fair share of air shows.

I love the bag! Great progress on the four seasons yup you should work on a piece if you've got the drive!

The bag looks great and can't wait to see the polka dot one:)

We saw the Blue Angels a few years back and it was awesome!

I can't believe how quickly you finish these projects. I take forever to do anything "creative".

Kathy said...

Nice finishing job on the bag. That's not girlie at all. Just might check out that tutorial and try it too.

I know, aren't Karen's bags fabulous? I think you did a great job with your first bag. Can't wait to see what you come up with for your daughter!

Cute bag! My 4 year old would love something like that.

The Blue Angels have been the featured attraction at a local festival 3 or 4 times in the past several years...they're quite impressive!
