A Brand New Bag

My gorgeous niece has a birthday next month, so I made her this cute little bag. It's from Weekend Designer - one of my favorite pattern websites. If you sew, or if you want to sew, this site is worth a visit. Check the archives - there are so many great ideas here!

I used brown ultraseude for her bag, and it was really easy. It was done in under two hours. I think it came out cute, and I added some decorative stitching 'round the edges, which I think added a nice finishing touch.

My niece is on a date tonight, though, and she caught me after I'd finished the tote and took it with her on her date! So, no photos of the finished product, but imagine one of these in brown, and you'll know what it looks like. I'll try to get a shot of her and the bag tomorrow, before she heads off to work, and if I do I'll add it to this post. Hope you're all having a fabulous weekend!

No photos yet! I guess that's a good thing - she's carrying the bag everywhere and having a busy weekend, so she hasn't stopped long enough for me to get a snapshot!

Melissa tells me there's a fabric store in Louisville, KY that caters to the horse show designers and they carry ultraseude in dozens of colors. Wouldn't it be fun to have a rainbow of little slouch bags?
