For me...

I got a wild hair and decided that i needed a 4th of July bag. I don't make a habit of making things on a whim and i don't usually make things for me. I am a compulsive over thinker!! But yesterday morning i stopped thinking and made this little tote bag. I no longer have excuses for my other bag taking me so long. This one took about an hour or hour and a half. It was very easy to make. I went hunting through my fabric stash for anything red white and blue and i found this denim i had bought for...something.... and this pretty red and white. Thanks to my new bag model. She did a very nice job!

cute bag leslie - and avery you did a great job modeling it - The closest I've come to finishing (or starting) a sewing project was taking in a regular curtain to fit a friends kitchen sized window - NEXT - my version or a NOJO!
