Small Bag

Great bag idea. Just not the right size.
Better Homes and Gardens has a quilting site. If you have never been you really should check it out. You have to register to download the free patterns but it is free to register. This bag is one of their free patterns. Sewing on the handles creates 6 pockets on the outside of the bag. Just right for keys, cell phones, iPods and whatever else a girl needs to carry. The only problem for me is the overall bag size it too small. The instructions clearly state "Finished Bag: 8x10x4".

I will blame it on all the insanity in my life the past few weeks. Why I didn't check out what the finished size would be before starting the bag is beyond me. I think I will try to make another LARGER bag from the same instruction.

Mason seems to be doing quite well. I know he is having a hard time waiting until Friday to get the stitches and the drain tube out. Hope this is the final surgery for him. A guy from my company that works one of our branches in California had surgery for his pilonidal cyst last November. He told me today he thinks it is back. I can feel his pain and frustration.


  1. I'll keep my fingers crossed that Mason gets his drain out soon. My poor sister-in-law had drains and tubes for two years between the ages of 24 and 26. It was pretty brutal.

  2. Oh honey. I went through so many lancing and drainings for a pilonidal cyst it is crazy. I have also had full blown surgery 2 times for it. It is now back again. Not fun at all. My prayers are definitely going out.

  3. This is so cute! My daughter is the seamstress in our family. So, she's thrilled I am following your blog now. :0)
