A little (bag) obsessed…

Tutorial Alert: really want to try this tutorial for a tote bag

Post Project Update: my birdie sling bag is in constant use since I made it, and it is still looking okay, although, I can see that the handle will get dirty with use… fortunately. the bag is washable (theoretically).

New Purchases: so I’m a little obsessed lately with drapery fabric (for sewing tote bags) and assorted hardware for bags (snaps, eyelets, assorted findings). I stopped by FabricLand yesterday (for one item!) and there was a sale. sigh. 50% off EVERYTHING. 2 hours later, I was happier, and poorer.
