A new bag!

I've seen these bags around in different shapes and sizes.  I love this style!  It's so me and so Ohsewfresh!  I been working on this adorable bag for a few days now.  I finally got the courage to draw up a pattern and give it a shot on Tuesday.  I hate trying something with my best fabric and supplies with the chance of it not working out and then I would have to throw it away.  Kills me.  But luck was on my side when I finally sewed it up.  You cannot believe how excited I was when I saw how it was turning out.  I'll admit that the shape of the body of the bag was not how I intended for it to be.  It was kind of a mistake, but after about 3 seconds of looking at it thinking that I had just ruined it, I realized I loved the shape!  I would prefer it this way over the shape I drew up from the beginning.  It is moments like these that make me want to design more!  I love sewing!

You know what the best part is?  Each of the flowers are made from the fabric of my two most favorite designers: Heather Bailey, and Anna Maria Horner.  Check out their blogs, they are amazing!

This little bag is in my Etsy shop.  I think I might make one for me too!  Did I mention that it's snowing like crazy outside?  I think we have about 4 inches so far!  Perfect day....  :)
