Hello from sunny and super hot...Southern Missouri! My family and I are on vacation in, I guess, the Country Music/Cheesy toupe wearing Capital of the Mid-West...otherwise known as Branson, MO! It's been great so far and I am so excited to get to spend this time with my entire family. I can't remember the last time my whole family took a vacation together. My hubby and I have four kids...his, mine, and ours. All girls...ranging in age from 21 to 5! We are also blessed to have my cousin, Stef, and her sweet baby girl, with us, too. Yes, my hubby is totally outnumbered by the girls, but I think he secretly loves his little "harem."
So, since my cousin is with me, I can show you the bag I made for her before leaving on this trip. It was one of those secret projects I was working on. I really like how the bag turned out. I only wish I would have had my custom Sew Loquacious stamp before I when I finished this purse.
If you can see it, the button on the band matches the shape of the fabric flower design almost perfectly. The button serves no purpose, but is only decorative. This bag is similar to the bag I made from the Goodwill skirt, but I made Stef's bag a tad smaller and also put a magnetic snap in it for a closure. What do you think about this bag?
Another project I managed to finish before my trip was this makeup bag. I had been using the same makeup bag for like 10 years! Can you believe that? So, I made this box bag based on the Stacy Sews box bag I made a month ago or so. I am in love with this fabric. I hope you can see the detail of this design. It is so great.
Well, that's it for now, but stay tuned. I hear Branson is ripe with quilt stores, and I am hoping, fabric stores. Surely I will find some fabulous fabric for my stash right?!
Toodles for now!
