So, I made a bag...

I know, I know, this isn't exactly news. I mean, I make bags all the time, right? I even design patterns for bags so you can make them too. But when I saw the tote bag pattern in this magazine, I had to make it. It just looked so cute! Now, I rarely follow someone else's bag pattern exactly. Ok, I rarely use them at all! But I decided to make this one exactly the way they did & it just came out sooooo cute!
A friend of mine had asked me to make her a summer bag & her birthday was coming up, so I made it for her. I actually finished it a couple weeks ago, before my little jaunt to Arizona. And, I seriously considered filling it up with my stuff for the airplane & calling it MINE. But I didn't. Great self restraint, huh? I do think perhaps I will make another one for me. I'll add it to the list anyways!

What have you been making these days?

I love this bag! It has great summery colors. I'm hoping to make a bag before I go to CA in less than two weeks. But, I wanted to finish up my Hexagon quilt, first, so I'm not sure what will happen.d
