A New Bag

August 30, 2011

So, my sweet niece turned 17 this month… I know!  Crazy.  I’m totally not old enough to have a 17 year old niece, so let’s not even go there, K?  Well, I made her this bag last year and she was due for a new one.  Home girl wears OUT her bags!  I remember seeing this bag a while back, so I decided to make her a bag based on this bag, but without using her pattern because I wanted it to have a true gusset, not be reversible, be a different size and to have pockets, so…. basically I wanted the strap to have the same adjustability but that’s about it!

So, what’dya think?




I just LOVE all the buttons!  I love that it is adjustable for wearing it like a messenger bag or like a shoulder bag.  I love the fun pockets and the fun fabric.  Isn’t this Echino fabric to DIE for!  Love that.  I just may have to make one in my size… and maybe some age appropriate fabric too.  Ha!

    LOVE IT!!! And I kinda chuckled a little to myself when I finished reading your post – I have the exact fabric in a different color scheme stashed away for a purse for me… who says this print isn’t grown up enough:)
