And not to leave it to the last topic, but onto the Carry Me: 20 Boutique Bags sew along project of the week. I had all the intentions in the world of making 2 small bags this weekend. However, with my distractions plus a non-intentioned movie I have yet to get the second bag started. But what do you think of this one? I have to say I was on the fence about it, but as it started to take shape I gradually began to fall in love with it. I even took some extra time (in between the 10+ doggy walks) and hand embroidered some extra detail on it. As has been the case with the other bags, I made some slight modifications. For starters, this bag didn't have a pocket, so I added one. The pattern called for a leather button closure, however I wasn't all into the button closure style, so I changed it to a magnetic snap. And the last modification was the handle. I decided to go with a fabric handle versus the leather one that was called for; I think it still turned out pretty good.
