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

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.
