Bravo!! You did a beautiful job! I am so impressed when anyone takes it upon themselves to sew anymore!
Keep it up and you will save yourself so much $!!
I'm not particularly skilled with a machine, but I certainly know the basics. ( it has come in very handy at times)
Your bag is lovely!

That is adorable! The first thing I thought of was "new moms", prolly because all my sisters and sisters-in-law seem to be having babies constantly. I make baby quilts for them but I bet they would love a handmade bag too! There is a really cute line of fabrics called "Aunt Gracie" by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Brothers you should check out. They are 1930's-reproduction fabrics in lots of bright colors and cute designs and they'd make really sweet bags. Just a thought!
