Look What I made

Author: Miranda /

Yes, it's another post and a late one at that but I am just so excited. Today was our grocery day and JJ and I went to Wal Mart! I decided to look at their patterns for a simple purse or bag pattern, I have so many great fabrics that I wanted to make into something bigger than a quilt block, well as luck would have it I found one and it has two, yep I said 2, different patterns in it. I also bought a very cute apron pattern but silly me didn't look on the back to realize I needed bias tape so that will have to be made another day.

Anyway back to my purse/bag pattern, so we got home, unloaded and put groceries away, I chatted a bit in the etsy forums and kids watched a couple of cartoons, then daddy finished yard work and it was outside to play in the yard and with bubbles! At that point I decided to go ahead and wash the fabric I wanted to use for this purse (as instructed by the pattern) I also traced the pattern pieces onto some freezer paper (cause I don't like using the tissue pattern pieces) and then back to playin with the kids.

We finally came back inside and daddy put on Nick so that I could work on my purse, fabric was dry so I ironed away, cut out all the pieces and sat down to sew my heart away. All went well till putting the bottom piece on, tore it out twice till I was happy with my work. Now this is my first and will be mine to use, so little things like not having thread to match the lining fabric so that you wouldn't see the seam in the bottom of the purse, well not a huge deal to me. Heck I'm the only one that's going to see it right! Ok, truthfully I didn't want to have to wait a day to finish the darn thing cause I want to use it, like NOW. So here it is:

Now I like this pattern and it breezed together easily (once I figured the bottom out to my satisfaction) So I hope to have a couple more of these made and up in my shop this week. (after a thread run and a bias tape run sometime tomorrow) Tomorrow's goal is to get the apron done and if I like it as well, then look for those as well.
Just a quick post for tonight, it's Spring Break for the kids this next week so look for many posts about the little quirky things they do. :)
Good Night bloggerland!
