Okay, so I know I said that I would stay away from purses, but I couldn't help it. I orginally bought the red corduroy to make a skirt, but , as you all know, plans can change. I had this pattern in my stash for quite some time, just like my others. One day, while picking up my sewing area, I read the back of pattern. Hmmmm.... corduroy, huh?? I think I have that. Now for a contrast?? That took me a minute, but, again, while picking up, I ran across the cotton animal print. Okay, maybe I am on to something. That's when it hit me! Why not not the red w/ the animal print as a contrast? The pattern was Butterick B5109, view D. Well, what do you think??

Okay, so my little guy has really been hinting at wanting a messenger bag to carry "his stuff". We made a make shift one a while back and I hoped that this one would buy me some time. WRONG!! No we all know that children have great memories when it comes to remembering stuff that you said-especially if it something they want, but can't remember you telling them to clean their room! So, I kept my promise and made him the bag. I borrowed the pattern from someone at work and it was a pretty quick sew. He didn't know that I was making it as I wanted it to be a surprise. I had some upholstery fabric in my stash and used some blue fabric to line it. I think it turned out pretty good. The pattern is a See & Sew pattern and the number alludes me at the moment. When I can pin him down long enough, I'll catch a quick pic of him w/ it and I'll post it at a later date along w/ the pattern #. Whatta ya think???
