A simple bag.

After I made the superhero birthday shirts and crowns, I thought it would be nice to make simple bags as gift bags that could double as a bag to play with. 

I monogrammed them to add a little personalized touch.

I had high hopes of writing a little tutorial/how-to so you could make your own simple bag, but I'm having writer's block.  Or blogging block?  The bags are very simple, so maybe a how-to is on it's way, but it's not happening tonight.  My baby just got his dream feed, so I need to get my head to bed to get some dreaming in before he wakes me up again.  (Crossing my fingers he doesn't wake up again until at least 5 a.m.!!!)

I also made 5 bags for a friend last week (or was it the week before). I used the Bow Bag Tutorial, but I omitted the bow and didn't line it.  I just finished all edges (even the ends of the straps) with my serger.   These bags were super simple, and my friend was super happy for my help.

I have a couple more things to share this week including my scrappy placemats that are finished.  Hope you're as excited as I am!!

Good night!

Love it! I especially love that chevron fabric. Where is it from?

My bday crown and Tshirt were both a huge hit!! Thanks for all the help!

The chevron fabric is distractingly cute!

Mostly the fact that you still making stuff is so great!

Maggie, my friend bought the fabric through Here's the link to several colors:

You only need a 1/2 yard to make a bag the size of the bow bag because the fabric is home decor and comes wide (I think 55 inches or so).

I'm so glad I could help.

Annee, the stuff I'm making is nothing special. It makes me happy to be sewing, but sad that's it's not a bit more exciting!
