I was blessed with a copy of the Lily Beth Pattern from Beki, at Artsy Crafty Babe. When I saw it, I knew it would make a great ballet bag. Savannah has been asking me to make her one since last year. Since ballet starts in a few weeks, I figured I would be a good momma. She was sleeping over at a friend's house when I started it, so she got a surprise when she got home : ) She had already picked out this fabric, and I knew it would look great with this pattern. This is actually my first purse/bag ever. I really enjoyed putting it together. Beki's pattern was very straightforward and easy to understand. Of course, Sydney and Isabella both want one now as well : D Sydney has already picked her fabric out and I have it cut and ready to sew. I just need to buy some more fusible fleece. So, I should have another bag to show you in a few days. Isabella is deciding on her fabric, and then Momma is going to have to make one for herself! I am thinking some Pop Garden fabric would be nice. Oh, and I used an antique button I bought on our St. Francisville trip in April. A covered button would have been really cute, too.
I also sort of finished the Elephant from Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts. He still needs eyes, but I can't decide if I want to satin stitch them on or use buttons. Also, I need to redo his ears, I put them on too low on his head. Here is a picture anyway, I will show another one when I redo him.
