I made something!

My dear sister Melissa came to visit this weekend. We had a ton of fun (another post will follow with pictures from the weekend) and I made my first thing with my new sewing machine. I got the fabric at IKEA and the pattern here. I took my time with it since it was my first time really making something.

I'm so impressed with how it came out! I had a bit of trouble with the appliques, my zig zag stitch was not cooperating. But overall I'm so proud I made this!

My baby sister modeling the bag. I think it's safe to say she loves it. She carried it around all day yesterday, even when she really didn't need a bag. When she got home to NY, I immediately got a request from my mom who wants one. Luckily, I saw that coming and already bought the fabric I'm going to use for my mom's bag.

Everyone's getting a tote bag for Christmas!

I want you to know a few things.

One: I freaking love that bag. It's incredible.

2: I just updated my 365 blog! Go look!

C: I should get brownie points (in the form of actual brownies or Baked Ziti) because I was in the process of updating BEFORE you commented that I am a bad Blogger.

Four: I only updated the blog until May 7th because May 8th includes a photo of a very ugly present for you that you may or may not get TODAY! :-D
