I finished Sara's Georgia Tech bag and I think it's looks fabulous! I love how simple the pleats are and I couldn't be happier with the fabric choice! Sophisticated on the outside, totally Ga Tech on the inside! (kind of like the mullet of handbags? Buisness on the outside, party on the inside?)
I added a couple of fun features to the bag too. The strap can be shortened to shoulder bag length (shown) or it can be let out all the way and be a cross-body bag-- perfect for wandering around a stadium hands-free! This bag is a nice, big size-- big enough to carry everything you need an a jacket or sweatshirt, so keys can get lost easily! I added a ribbon with a clasp on the end so Sara can clip her keys to it-- they'll always be handy! No more digging through your purse!
I had some scrap fabric left over, so I made a matching clutch, key fob, and "Buzz" pin. Sara can clip the pin to her purse or jacket for game day to show a little extra team spirit!
I've also been a busy make a suprise fall bag for my mom! I made her a bag for mother's day last spring. She had told me she wanted something to carry her ipad and two travel mugs to church with (my parents are hip like that-- no bibles or notebooks- use the ipad! And they drink coffee in style!). I made her a tote for it, and she's used it as her everyday purse ever since! With fall here, she needed a purse with fall colors (she loves jewel tones) so I picked up some home dec fabric and got started.
I got the fabric for a steal at Warehouse Fabrics too! The fabric I used for the lining and accent I got at JoAnn's.
