Mommy's Got A Brand New Bag!

Meet my new sewing area...

Here is the cute mod podged box I made full of my new sewing notions...
(I am addicted to mod podge! I even modpodged my garbage pail for my sewing area!)


Here are my cute buttons...
And here is the start of my first project!
(I bought the Amy Butler pattern at a quilt shop. I purchased the stack of fabric from the Walmart sewing bin for under $1o!)
And with much,much help from my talented sister Sara here is the finished project!!....

Oh my gosh isn't it so cute!!
We altered it a bit to fit my needs and to simplify the pattern. The pattern was not an easy first project!! I could have never been able to accomplish this without my sister's help! *my sister says that I did a great job!! - i'm just saying.

I found this cute felt flower at Walmart, who knew?
Do you love the ruffle edge on the front pocket? I do. Just one of our alterations on the pattern!

We added inside pockets including one for my blackberry!
It is the ideal diaper bag!!



Thank you Sara for all your help!!
We have been sewing non stop for the last two days!

And in the words of Jo March "I could never love anyone more than I love my sisters"

So cute! I love the buttons too. I'm so jealous that you know how to sew. I really want to learn but it just seems so intimidating to me. I can't wait to see what you come up with next!
