ladybugs



This morning I finished this bag, and I'm so happy that I found this pattern. I'll definitely be making more of these. For this bag I used duck cloth and a panel of the ladybug fabric from superbuzzy. It's lined in red with a ladybug pocket. I shortened the straps because I prefer a shoulder bag to the messenger style. With the shorter strap, the bag really should be cut with a more angular shape rather than the rectangle because it kind of folds in on itself. Anywho, I'm quite happy with how quick it went (under 3 hours, and I'm quite slow) and how productive I feel. I mean, this is something I can use everyday! Well, maybe in the spring. There's one more detail I want to add, but it may be next weekend before I get to it. I definitely recommend this bag pattern- quick, easy to follow, and modifiable.
Now I want to kick myself for lurking so long before posting comments on others' blogs. Now that I'm posting, I realize how valuable (and exciting) each comment is. So, if you're reading, let me know what you think!
