I can’t WAIT to share this with you! My newest (and fave) creation. Now, remember – I don’t consider myself a sew-er, but maybe…just maybe…I’ve graduated to a “novice” seamstress 🙂 A little background on me: I love bags… I love purses, I love totes, I love backpacks..whatever. I also have very little funds for such things. Solution? CREATE! Sew, I found an adorable pattern (free – YES!) on a cute site called “Very Purple Person” for a reversible tote and I knew I had to make it. Here is her adorable creation that caught my eye:
And here is my version:
Be kind – like I said… I’m new at this whole “sewing” thing. But, I love it. It looks a bit wonky in the photo because I had a bunch of stuff in it. I should have photographed it empty. Oops.
I used several scraps of fabric that I had around, sewed them into one large piece of fabric, then cut the pattern from that. Before sewing the two sides together, I took a long strip of white, finished the edges and gathered it into a fun ruffle that I stitched on. I also added some simple fabric rosettes to add a little “Pizzaz”. Now, I’ve got a fun beach bag for my summer trip that I leave for in TWO MORE SLEEPS! I’m so excited!!
I’d love to hear what you think of my bag! And if you make one, share it with me. I want to see!

I stumbled upon your blog when some women off Regina moms shared links to their photos. Here is a bag I recently made it is the made by rae buttercup bag (free pattern)http://simplelivingforme.blogspot.com/2011/05/more-gifts-for-mother.html
you really under-estimate yourself…you did a FANTASTIC job! it's super cute. the ruffles are darling and i think the colors are very universal…you could use this bag all year round. great job!
That bag is so adorable. Love it! Great job. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
I think it's looks great! I will have to check out that pattern- extra bonus that it's free! 🙂
Be kind? Oh wow!!! Your bag is beautiful. I love the combination of colors and the different printed fabrics. You will be having an ETSY store when? 🙂 Like you I am a purse, hand bag person but your right they are so expensive. I wish I could sew but to be honest I cannot sew to save my life. I *love your bag Bobbi-Jo. It is gorgeous.
