The Cutest Bag I've Ever Made

>> Friday, August 15, 2008

So there are not many bags on this blog, although I've made a million. I went through that phase about 3 years ago, before I discovered blogging. I made baby bags, I made tote bags, I made every type of bag you could think of. At one point my mom had me contracted out to make bags for her friends and then later I subjected myself to making bags for all of my bridesmaids, flower girls, and attendants in my wedding (and I'm from the south, it was not a small wedding party).

Once you go craft you never go back (if that gets as big as that's hot...someone better give me credit). You feel like your selling your friends and family short when you go with store bought...when half the time they would probably like the store bought better. Anyhow, I made a bag this afternoon and I'm very proud of it. I love it. I want to keep it for myself...but it's not for me.

Introducing.... the cutest bag I've ever made.

I love how wide the straps are, it's my favorite part. And I used my favorite stitch to sew the inside to the outside...don't know if you can see that. The best part is I made it in one hour! Raise your hand and I'll come over and teach you how.

This is a self portrait of myself (obviously) and the bag. Don't think of it as blurry...think of it as an action shot.

I call her The Kate Bag

I am really being serious.

I am not at all good with using the machine that resides in my front closet. Ya know, the one that holds the giant neadle and spools of thread, and something called a bobbin, whatever the heck that is. But I think it would be AWESOME to be able to do this. I would like to try, but if I STINK at it (which I think I will) will you make me one?

I love checking your blog. I'm new to sewing and have only made bibs, burpies, and simple outfits, but I would really REALLY like to make this bag! Did you design the template yourself? I also adore the fabric! Any tips for this bag or sewing in general- you seem to be so good at it!

Do you have a pattern or tutorial for this bag? Did you make up the pattern yourself? I LOVE it!!! :)

Love the fabric and style (and yes those wide straps!), would you be able to share the pattern and tutorial? It's great for a weekend carry around bag, very pretty. Thanks!
