The last time I sewed until recently was in high school. My sister asked me to sew her some simple fleece throw pillows for her guest bedroom so I dusted off my sewing machine and got to work. I had forgotten how much fun it was! I went out to Joann fabric to get some fabric and ideas. My sister found some super cute cupcake fabric and a pattern that she liked and I got to work.

The pattern is one of the simplicity patterns. We realized once we got home that the pattern was way to small for what she needed so I enlarged it a lot. I also decided against the zipper that the pattern called for and used magnetic snaps instead. I also added a liner with a zipper pocket and some pockets for her phone or whatever, and a key chain holder.

I made one for myself with the same cupcake fabric in pink and then my mom wanted one too. I also made a wallet for myself to match my bag. The wallet is based on this tutorial

My Bag and Wallet









My sister's bag



My mom's bag


They definitely aren't perfect but doing these bags has gotten me excited about sewing and I can't wait to start some more projects Smiley

I love how the strap goes all the way around the bag.  It looks very sturdy.  And very nice.  Good job.
