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.
