Project 1

With church starting at 1:00pm now, it already feels like there's a lot more hanging around time in the morning. I'm not much of a "hanging around" kind of person, and got itching to do something different. I mentioned a handbag I started sewing a couple of posts ago and was thinking about continuing that, but I got looking through a sewing projects book I've got, found a different handbag that was also a really cute style and looked to be pretty easy, and decided to just be crazy and go for it.

I didn't finish it in time for church, but it was done by that night.

Aren't I amazing? :) I didn't pay too much attention to how big it was going to turn out, and was pleased that it was perfect scripture size.

Maybe the book title, "Bend the Rules Sewing," helped me live a bit on the edge. I created the pocket all by myself, and even made a pencil pocket on each side.

All in all, a fun and easy project to start out that New Year's resolution with. Now my little girls are asking when I'm going to make a bag for them.

* Yes Kathryn, I copied the title from you. :)
* Lara - I sewed straight!!


  1. You ARE awesome! What a cute bag. :) You should have Melanie HELP you make the next one. ;)

  2. p.s. Aren't I a brilliant Post Title Writer?

  3. I'll have to think about that one Kathryn. Though probably something a bit more simple first.

    So brilliant you are copy worthy! :)

  4. It's beautiful! I don't know though. I'm going to have to get a closer look to see if those seams are straight.

    My studio is all done so get on over here!

  5. You're scaring me Lara, but I'll be strong.
