The other day I decided to do something with them. Something very dear to my heart.
I love bags, it is my downfall. I am not choosy either. Whether they be from Kohl's, Target, TJ Maxx, on clearance, on sale, from a consignment store, garage sale, it doesn't matter to me. I just love bags. Tote bags, wallet on a string, purses, backpacks, it doesn't matter.
I don't know where it started, I just love them. I have this very quirky thing about me that remembers what kind of purse you are carrying. Wierd I know. But if I met you and you were carrying a purse, I would probably remember 10 years from now what kind of purse you had.
I don't care about name brands, I like them all. However, I am cheap. So, I prefer to get them on clearance, or as a gift now that I have kids. I rarely, if ever buy a new one anymore, unless I get it for a gift for my birthday or Christmas.
So that is what I made with my fabric. I made 2 purses! My 2 older girls love the black one and I cannot wait until Spring to use the light colored one.
This is the one I cannot wait to use come spring. Isn't it cute?
Here is the other one. I did loosely use this pattern here to make this one. And yes, my pocket is not centered on the side, it was my first one okay? Cut me some slack. I was however very pleased with how everything else turned out. It is a little small for me, with 4 kids, I tend to carry a lot.
And here is the inside of this purse, I lined it with roosters, adorable right?
I love doing crafts. It is fun and relaxing. I am not one to sit, so this gives me something to do when I do have time for myself. I know, rare, but when I do, I enjoy doing things like this.
Wait til you see what I am making for my kids for Valentine's Day. Stay tuned.
