mama's got a brand new bag

When I really need a new purse, I can never seem to find just the right one. Thus was the case last weekend. Will's end of the year party was Saturday night. I have been needing a new bag for quite some time and I wasn't about to carry that old rag tag bag to this party. So I had my perfect excuse for shopping (like I really need one most of the time). Multiple shops later I hadn't found one (the Coach purse that was FABULOUS was a bit out of my budget ). So off to the fabric store. It was a last ditch effort (those seldomly work for me). An hour later I was pleasantly surprised at how my bag turned out. It was just what I wanted. The grand total had to have been under $3. Add a few yo-yos and an antique button and I was done! I love it when things turn out better than you were expecting!

Cute bag! I bought a new purse this week too. On sale at Target - I have very high-end taste. :) ha! But seriously, I'm suprised how much it pleased me to buy it. Oh, what a new purse can do for a girl....

Good job! I'm in desperate need of a new bag. Maybe I should work on that?

Beautiful! It looks so elegant! I can't quite tell, is the fabric quilted?
