Yep, I sure did! I went to the fabric store last Friday for the first time in years, and a few hours later (insert a cat-nap and a movie with the kids here), I had made this fabulous, slouchy, hobo/tote bag!

I have to admit that I am quite pleased with myself, seeing that I have not sewed in years!! I used to be quite the little seamstress growing up... Making barbie clothes and accessories, pocket books, etc. I even made a quilt when I was a teenager!

My mom was always encouraging and had me doing something crafty (thank you, mom!).

You know what a purse-aholic I am, so I'm super excited to carry this around.

I just love the fabric! (It's lined with muslin.)

And the pink RikRak.

My favorite detail? The perfectly-matching, vintage buttons from my grandma!

What do you think?!

It's adorable! I wish I enjoyed sewing more (but if I did, I would probably have an endless array of purses laying around, which I don't especially need, lol).

Your new bag is gorgeous. Love the buttons! Doesn't it feel great to use/wear something you've made yourself?!
