Momma's Got a Brand New Bag!

I've been doing a little bit of Christmas sewing that I CAN'T show, because some of the giftees actually read my blog. I was getting jealous of the cute stuff and had to make myself something.

This is my first attempt at a zippered bag and that part turned out great. I still need to tack down the binding on the inside, but otherwise I LOVE it. It's a little bigger than need be, but I have a tendency to throw a ton of crap in my bag. (The original dimensions were 17" tall by 16" wide.) The handles are also a little long, but it'll work fine when I'm wearing a winter coat. It's more the color of the darker pictures so perfect for fall.


  1. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Cute bag and etsy store!

  2. I love this bag!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog- there are a lot of creative Lisas out there. I also buy clothes and cut them up to make stuff. I have not made a bag yet, at least not one I could carry in public, but this is inspiring me! I need to make a bag!
