A purse for me.


After seeing so many adorable bags at the Sewing Summit last weekend, I felt like I needed a sassy, new purse for myself. If I was really on top of things I would have made one BEFORE the Summit, but clearly, that was not the case! My dear friend Ann-Marie made her bag using a pattern from Noodlehead called the 241 bag and it was fabulous, so of course I had to make one too!  Ann-Marie is the one who got me addicted to sewing just about a year and a half ago, so I blame her for my fabric hoarding issues! ;)
Now, just for fun, hare are a few pictures from the Sewing Summit that I borrowed from her blog because I didn't even take my camera - sheesh!
Me and my partner in crime!

                                                               Sewing Nirvana!

  2. Love the bag! I came home with 2 pictures. Just 2. Lame. Next year!
    Now maybe I will have to make a bag since I didn't make one in time for summit either.
