I'm suddenly not petrified of zippers and feel like I'm getting better with each one I install. In fact, they are kind of fun!? I can't believe I just said that.
In addition to an exterior zippered pocket, I put in a split open pocket on the interior. The bag functions wonderfully, is the perfect size for all of my odds and ends, and (to me) is fashionable to boot!
The rest of the bags I've been busting out have been gifts or commissions, and there is still one more yet to be made! This next batch resulted as a need for a 4 year old birthday present and a lack of desire to buy something. I came across this tutorial and churned out the first bag like lightning.
It was so fast and easy that I quickly decided that Rio and her little friends all needed one too so four more magically appeared. They were each made with specific little ladies in mind and all share the same lining. Fun, yes?
My last one for the weekend actually came before my purse shown above. It was a commission that I ended up loooooving the functionality of and decided that I definitely needed to base my new purse off of it.
And for those who like sales, I'm having a 25% off sale in my shop right meow! All sorts of things I've made, fabrics, and trims! Use the code quartersale at checkout...expires this Friday!
