I just finished the messenger bag I've been "working" on since Christmas! That is to say, it's been largely ignored for about a month. Poor thing. And it's such a great bag! It didn't deserve that. I just love it. And as soon as it's completely dried from where I scrubbed the chalk marks off of the inside--and as soon as I get back from church and have sufficient light to take some great pics of it--I'm going to add it to my Etsy shop and post a few pics here. So, probably tomorrow. It's just so pretty! I can't wait to show it to you! It's one of those projects that, even tho you made with full intentions of not keeping it, it'll be hard to part with.
Here are the adorable flower pins that I made to go with it. They are going to look so, SO great on the bag, but I put real pin backs on them so you can put them on your shirt, jacket, the bag... you know, wherever. The bag is red, black, and gray plaid, so these will feminize it just a touch. Lovely!
Also, this great dress. When I say great, I mean great color, great applique work, great faux-suede fabric. Great opportunity!! There's a funny story about this dress that I'll have to tell you later. When I'm not late for church. :)
