I'm a bag lady

It is true, I do love a good bag. So when I found Made by Rae's free "buttercup bag" pattern last summer, I just had to try it. I picked some fabric, cut all the pieces...and then put them in a drawer and forgot about them. Found them last night and decided it was time to conqure my fear of sewing pleats and curves...Here is the inside, complete with lining and a little pocket.The pattern uses just a fat quarter of fabric, so it is a little small for most grown-ups -- however, my daughter thinks it is a perfect tote. LOL She puts it up on her shoulder and cocks her head to the side to keep it from slipping. So cute!

And I've been stitching, too! Here is the latest progress on "Count Your Blessings." I think it will be done soon!

I love bags and totes, but never attempted to make one. Trying to sew one together scares me though... :) I'm not all that skilled on the sewing machine.

Hi, new follower here. I'm following the travelling pattern from Nataly's blog. I love your stitching, I have a 2 year and I used to be a librarian so looking forward to reading your blog.

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
