Sewing Again and Birthday Girls

 I've sewn another bag.  I recently bought a purse pattern that I have been wanting for a long time, the Prairie Rose  by Fig Tree and Co.  I think if I make it again I will put batting in the flap and quilt it also, and maybe add some tabs on the inside for a magnetic closure.  I would kind of like to make it in a red print and also make the front of the bag a couple of inches less wide.  It is gathered on the front at the top, but I don't want it so bulky in the front.  I have to mess with it too much to get the flap to lay right.  I do like the looks of it though--It's very girly.
A row of piping around the edge of the flap before adding the scalloped ruffle in a contrasting color would be nice also.
The flap seems a little long, too.  I think I'm a perfectionist just looking for the perfect purse.
I linked up with amylouwho's sew and tell.  Go check it out.  There's another linky party at The Shabby Nest--tons of stuff.

We went to our middle daughter's home for our  youngest granddaughters' B-day party.
Evie is three now.  The party started with a wiener roast.  Yum! I indulged with a bun--I'm on a diet.  It sure was good.
Our little Sophie will be one later on this month.  She's in the swing with mommy--her best friend.  Her eyes just light up when sees her mommy walk into the room.
Evie got some new PJ's and wanted to wear them-cute.  I think Isaiah's head is getting warm while he's roasting his hot dog.  Chili is hoping for some crumbs to fall.
Madison reminds me of myself when I was her age--always active.
Grace recently had her B-day also--she's the red-headed-Sweetie.
Dad needs a picture for his cell phone.  Don't you just love the flags in the window?  Celeste made them.  Such a cute idea.
