    Default Another project lol

    So.. I got to thinking today looking at the bibs I made last night..

    Geez.. these would make awfully cute little hand bags..

    So then I altered my pattern a bit.. and voila!

    A Halloween hand bag!



    I showed my prototype to my sister and she's in love with it. Lol I need to make a few changes to the handle... but otherwise, I'm quite happy with how it turned out!

    Adorable!

    Kinda OT, where do you get your fabric?

    ETA: Remember the days when you could go around with a little bag like that and think nothing of it? No diapers, snacks, change of clothes just in case... LOL!

    LOL I was just telling DH I needed to go to Goodwill to buy some fabric (read: clothes to cut up) when it occurred to me that maybe I should buy actual fabric and *gasp* use a pattern! LOL

    I have never bought a pattern in my life.

    I make all of my own, or just wing it.
    I find something similiar.. or tear something apart if I need too. Lol

    Sometimes its really hard to find a fabric you like, but you can find it in a shirt or something.. so just rip that sucker apart LOL
