I made a new bag today -- and boy do I need it. I've been carrying around that diaper bag that you get free at the hospital when you have a baby and EVERYONE tells me about it. I'm starting to get really embarrassed. To give myself credit, I did make this bag, but I got tired of it after a while and my sister really loved it, so I gave it to her the last time I was visiting.
Anyway, this is my new one that I made today. I have been wanting to try something with a frayed edge look and I thought this would be perfect for it because normally you have to sew a purse twice - once for the outside and once for the lining. Because I wanted the seams to show, I got to sew them at once!
I stiched the flower applique on using a straight stitch so that those edges will fray a bit too. Click here for the applique pattern. I would love to see anything else with my carolina fair designs flower on it! Hopefully I'll get a flikr pool made soon. Then I want everyone to post pictures!
