The Berry Sweet Bag

Been blogging less, and crafting more. Life is so very good.

My Sugar Bear needed a special bag for a special activity (to be shared later). I dug through all my fabric and came up with some fun flannel that The Sugar would love. Her favorite colors are pink and green, and she is a FREAK for any sort of berry.

Recently, while perusing some fun crafty blogs, I ran across this really darling reversible tote. The lovely, Ali, inspired me so much, that I set to making not only my very first bag, but my very first bag with NO INSTRUCTIONS! eeekkkkk....what a challenge.

But....I think I stepped up, and ended up with one the the CUTEST bags I've ever seen.


Don't you just LOVE the fabric. So SWEET!


Sugar Bear love the strawberry fabric, so this side is her very favorite.


Here is the reverse side. It is my favorite. I love the little pocket.


Here you can see the the strawberry fabric is now on the inside. ♥


I am just so very proud of myself for pulling this thing off. It was a bit of a brain puzzle figuring out how to make sure it looked good both inside and out. The amazing thing is....I didn't have to take any of it apart in the process. That is seriously a miracle.


Sugar will be using it tomorrow. I can't wait to see her packing it around.
