More than a Tiny bit Happy
I made the wedgie bag a few weeks ago and have used it once. I should never have made it using the wooden handles, because even though I like the look, that bag is utterly impractical. Between holding a baby, holding hands across the parking lot, pushing a shopping cart, etc. when do I ever have a free hand to hold a cute little purse?
I've wanted to make the shoulder bag at Tiny Happy for a while now, and I wanted it to have that scrappy/linen/patchwork look to it. Same feel as my wedgie bag, but a bit more practical. So here it is--front and back are quite different. I highly recommend her pattern. It was very easy to follow and I've been using my new bag quite steadily for the past few days. I LOVE IT!!!!
Oh, and I got a comment on the above picture asking if I've lost my baby weight. Um. NOOOO! I still have a bit more to lose. Need to do some sit ups, if you know what I mean. Here's the sad part--I went to the gym yesterday and there was a sign on the door saying they've gone bankrupt. BANKRUPT!!! No gym for me anymore! Boo hoo.
