My project of the week

This has been my project for the last week. I started it last Thurs. night at sewing wind up round up. I had received this awesome charm pack and was looking for the perfect pattern to use them in. I ended up using a buggybarn print for the lining and handles. It's the Pattern My Mom and Me. I made the large size. It's an easy pattern, except for the bottom which is rounded ( I would have just done square corners), but I followed the pattern and it called for bias binding. Since I'm okay doing the bias binding, I decided to use the oval bottom.

This Thursday night I finished putting the bag together, except for the binding. I decided I wanted to do a bias binding tutorial. Last night we stayed in and Paul cooked Manicotti which gave me a couple hours to sew before supper. I made the binding and put it on and then while we watched a movie, I hand sewed it down. It's now finished except for the button to close it, which I haven't picked up now.

It's so big that my Miranda bag fits inside it and there is extra room on top! I love the colors in this and it's super special to me since Jen sent the charms.

I love it! Of course, I love the colors too, reminds me of the pinks and browns in my love letter quilt, I just love the color combination!

I have this pattern, but wasn't sure how it would come out. I couldn't quite picture it. now that I've seen it in action I'm excited to try it. the bias bottom intimidates me, though, so perhaps I'll square the bottom.

I love the bag - the colors scheme is great!
