I've been working with Simplicity's Soft Bags Sewing Patterns For Dummies.These patterns are oh-so-great! I have to admit this was the first time I used a pattern and didn't wing most of it cause I have a habit of getting aggrivated at the directions and end up making them up as I go. I made a bag with pattern E and it turned out okay but I think they real reason I didn't like it that much was cause of the fabric I used. Then yesterday I tried pattern C...I LOVE IT! It took up most of my day but I think now that I have the hang of it I can make one in a few short hours. I had the feeling it was missing something and couldn't decide how I wanted to finish it. Then today while I was checking out  artzyfartzy's wonderful website www.fashioncompassion.com (which I go to at least once a day cause you never know when shes gonna have something oh-so-spiffy-and-new) I saw the "You're Breaking My Heart Bag" which I've been dying to get but been broke cause of Christmas n all. So I made an attempt at making myself a purse kind of like it. I don't think it turned out too bad...not anywhere near as cute as artzyfartzy's...but good.  I just found some heart and bandage clip art, traced it onto felt, cut it out, glued it together, then sewed it on to make sure itd stay. This was the first time I've ever used felt and I think Ill be working with it a lot more now! Now I've just got to get to work on all those other purse patterns....*sigh*...I love Christmas break Grin

The little felt heart and band-aid are fabulous! I'm going to try to whip up something similar for myself by Valentine's Day, to proclaim my single-ness to the world. Thanks for passing along the idea!
