A bag I'm proud of.



It might not look that exciting but this bag completely thrills me because it's the very first ting EVER that I've made without a pattern. Well, except for my own pattern that I wrote out! I'm not a math person, I'm not a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of person. I like patterns and tutorials and directions.

But I wanted to make something all my own and I did. It felt GREAT - I love saying YES when someone asks if I've made the bag I'm carrying! I love bags but it's not always in the budget to buy all the cute ones I spy on etsy so I'm on a mission to start making the things I want (as well as supporting shops I love when I can). There are a few changes I'd make in this bag next time but nothing major.

Quilter's Linen on the outside, Washi on the inside - vintage button pin also made by me :-)
