All finished!

This was a surprisingly easy bag to make after all - I'm a very visual learner, I watch and then copy, but as this was a book and not an actual pattern it required me to read slowly and take each step one by one, no running ahead. ;-)

This was my trial bag, but I'm definitely going to make more! I chose the fabrics I used on Blossom's apron a few weeks ago as I still had plenty and we just loved the purple with the lime at the time.
I also agreed with Amy Karol "..the velvet ribbon is optional, but really, how could you leave it off?"

I'll make a pretty, feminine (ala shabby chic) copy this weekend. I am definitely into my soft, pink, girly (as my husband calls it) persona at the moment.

Have a beautiful day!

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
