Yes, I did just call myself “Mama” but only for effect, you know, as in “Papa’s Got a Brand New Bag”. I’m not actually a mama. I feel the need to get that cleared up before anyone (hi Mom!) gets their hopes up.
Check it out! Cute, right? I made it. Did too. Really. In just over one movie. This seems to be my measure of time when sewing. I can make a bag in two episodes of House or one viewing of Stardust including the deleted scenes. I actually did watch Stardust while making this bag. I love that movie. Have you seen it? I seem to fall hard for the fairy-tales-for-grown-ups-type movies.
Anyhow, my bag! Do you love it? The strap is just the right length and it hangs perfectly on my shoulder. I love it. It’s puckered funny in this picture because it has my brick of a phone and my iPod in it and they’re pulling on the magnetic clasp. It’s actually too big for me since all I carry are my phone and iPod and a little credit card holder, but I’m thinking of making a much bigger version for all of those large bag-lovers out there. What do you think?
