sweet 16

Sitting in the kitchen, our daughter tells me that it is her friend's Sweet 16 birthday -- and could I please make her friend a bag for that birthday?

And here's the thing, Mom -- it has to be done by tomorrow.......
~~~

Oooooooooookay. So I draw a rough pattern on paper. And make a very hasty stop into the fabric store, lazily strolling down each row of fabric, fingering all those beautiful patterns and texture...Note to self--Shopping with a time constraint is not the way to shop in any fabric store!

And of course at home -- there's slivers to take out of 9 year old boys who play too heartily at recess. And suppers to get on the table. And daughters to be picked up from catechism class. And 4 pages of a history assignment. And styrofoam cells that need to be hot-glued into place....
And a bag for a very sweet 16 year old. Happy birthday, Kara.

Oh My Gosh! I love your bag!!! My colors too...anything with fuschia or hot pink has got to be good. I love the pattern you did. Will you share it or sell the pattern? What is the fabric line you used? Gotta get me some!

Kara said...

Pink and green is such a great combination. This bag is soooo much fun!

How A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! I didn't realize it was made from pinwhale courdory until I enlarged the pictures. In fact, it looks suspiciously like fabric I got from JoAnn's for some doll outfits. You have great taste. Hehehehehe. Cute, cute, cute! And you did a great job on the pattern. Love it! :o)

ONLY you could invent a pattern and make a adorable bag in one night. I keep telling you should sell some of these ideas of yours. It is just perfect. I love it. Love the design, love the colors, love the flower....LOVE IT. Glad to hear from you over at DQ....I was beginning to wonder where you had wandered off to. :)

This bag is to die for! I love your fabric choices and that flower! Best of all this is a memory that your daughter will carry with her - a mom who cared enough to do something so gorgeous just because she asked you to. Priceless. blessings, marlene

You must work very well under pressure - and to draft the pattern as well? It's adorable and I'm sure she will love it!

I am constantly in awe of your talent! I'm sure that's going to be her favorite birthday present. Thanks for stopping by our blog yesterday. It is always such a pleasure to see that you were there. I'd like to thank you for your constant inspiration. For me, that means that you show Completed projects! That is a problem I have, not getting things Completed for a while. I tend to start too many things. This handbag is a perfect example. Have a great day, Dawn! Twyla

That's amazing - printed corduroy is a perfect choice for a bag. The way you embellished it is so clever, and the tag is a really professional touch. I bet the birthday girl loved it!

Beautiful! I am very impressed that you could make a bag, pattern and all, in so short a time.
