A Charming Handbag

I've got the sewing itch and I think it's going to take a whole lotta bags to scratch it sufficiently.

I'm thrilled with my latest piece. A big thanks goes out to Amy Karol's fabulous book Bend the Rules Sewing for this pattern. Making this one little bag has got the creative juices flowing, her techniques are so easy and totally transferable.

I'm loving this fabric and the fact that I now know a simple way to make square bottoms. Yay!

Oh I'm glad you like it! I said to Mike last night that I thought this bag was very much a Mom M bag. :)

The pic doesn't do the bag justice.
It looks even nicer in real space.
You definately got your sewing talent from your grandma and nana not the mommie.
Keep on sewing sweetie, your doing a good job!
