Now that these are done and gone....


I can finally enjoy some crafting!!!

After about a three month wait I finally got Amy Karol's most excellent book at the library. It is oh, so full of fun things to make. I started with the pleated beauty bag on Thursday night and finished it yesterday. I forgot to take a picture of it in the daylight, so I'll add one tomorrow, cause it is CUTE. If I do say so myself. My first bag with a magnetic snap closure and fully lined with 3 slip pockets. I love it, and have turned it into my new diaper bag. Really this was a trial bag made from all extra fabric I had on hand so that I could make the real deal into a killer diaper bag for my sister, Rebecca. I learned a lot from my "trial bag", and I'll change some things on Rebby's bag. But this one is cute enough and functional enough to claim in public, which makes me very happy. A far cry from the free one I got from the Birthing Center.

My head is totally swimming with all the projects I need to make soon. So many that I almost freeze when I go to my sewing room. One. Thing. At. A. Time.
