Lazy Girl Designs have so many cute and easy bag patterns. This one is especially easy and I think it will be my choice for gifts this year. The handle is tied only for ease of picture-taking. I'm going to have to find a sale on 12 - 14" zippers! This one took about an hour to make only because I had to read and re-read the directions just so I wouldn't have to rip out anything.
What a busy day at work! Sometimes I wonder if it's worth the misunderstandings that inevitably occur when changing appointments that clients are so used to having. But, everything turned out fine. I am very tired tonight, but when I stepped into my sewing room and remembered I wanted to work on this purse, boom! my energy returned - just like that! (finger snapping!) lol Now that the bag is finished, I'm tired again.
Rob and April took us by their new house, er, the lot the house will be built on. How exciting to be young and so full of future plans! I am simultaneously ecstatic and scared for them. But, with prayers and lots of common sense, I think these two will be just fine.
