My new bag

So, I found a really cool sew along on the {make} blog. I made a new bag for myself. I got to try out quilting and make an adjustable strap so I can wear it across my body. The blog made 2 short straps to be carried or over the shoulder. I used 19 different fabrics on it! I think I like it. Have to use it for a bit and see if it softens up because right now it's pretty stiff. Without further ado, here's my new bag!

The super long strap that I love and made out of all the different fabrics in the bag. The hardware came from strapworks. LOVE IT! I can even get the hardware in different colors and sizes!

Little Letter Needle Book

Wandering thru blog land I came upon a tutorial for a needle book. I've been meaning to make one to hold all my random needles that are floating around my sewing box and poking my fingers. Well, this tutorial on {make} was SUPER easy to follow and made great envelopes! I didn't make them all postage style and stuff but I may make some like that eventually.

Outsides/fronts of needle books. The one on the left is mine, my sisters is in the middle, and my sister in laws is on the right.

The inside of my needle envelope all loaded up with needles.
