It's My Bag, Baby




Grooaaann to the Austin Powers reference!

I'll totally admit that I wanted to learn how to sew after watching Project Runway. I began taking sewing classes five weeks ago in Pearland, Texas. Those were the only classes available, so for four weeks I drove 30 miles to take 2 1/2 hour classes. The first two classes were pure instruction- I felt like I was back in school. The second two classes we worked on our project, a tote complete with interfacing and a sturdy bottom insert.

I enjoyed the class and I can't wait to make more totes (with fabric of my own choice this time..) So anyone who has a birthday in the next 4-5 months will more than likely receive a variation of this bag, but definitly with fabulous fabric from Amy Butler. If you haven't seen her fabric, you must. So Cute.
