Last night I participated in the Friday Night Sew-In. I had many projects to complete but chose to complete this purple and green sling bag. It has a magnetic closure, a large zipper pocket and a standard size regular pocket. Very simple, but I am glad I completed it as I sold it shortly after. A very successful night to ease back into sewing. Oh, and sorry for the poor quality of the picture. Too lazy to get the good camera out. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

These are the projects I have been working on lately.

Sling Bag Birthday Present for Tiese
So my next door neighbour turned 7 years old last month. Calie is a pretty smart little kid with a growing sense of humour as she ages. I made this bag for her as birthday present.
The bright flowery fabric is your standard run of the mill 100% craft cotton. LOVE the brightness of this. It is on the front flap, the lining inside and as a trim for the back pocket. The black is a medium weight cotton twill. I chose black for the dirt factor that children inevitably get into somehow. There is a large pocket inside with a button to keep everything in its place. As this was for a 7 yr old, I chose not to add a change pocket and did not see a need for a cell phone pocket. The strap is adjustable and has rivets attaching it to the bag for extra strength.
Love these patterns. Heck, I love all bold flowery prints lately. This Yoga Mat bag was inspired by an Amy Butler pattern.
It is lined with a lovely chocoate satin and has 3 pockets at the bottom that are 6″ wide x 10″ in length. Perfect for keys, wallet or other small things you tend to have on you at any given point that need a home while you are practicing.
