Mama's got a Brand New Bag !


I finally made a bag for myself! It has been on the project list for close to a year now! I ran into a road block on the tree project, and am waiting for some fabric to finish it. So, when I came across this tutorial a few days ago, it was just the perfect quick project to get that feeling of accomplishment I was needing in my sewing world. I used one of the fabrics from Anna Maria Horner's Bohemian line. Its suppose to be reversible, but I added some pockets in the inside so I don't need to fumble for my keys and phone. I also added a liner of cotton flannel to give it more weight, a suggestion that came from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing Book, which I highly recommend whenever you are making a bag or purse. Great book I might add to !
