Last night was a slow night at work, and since my first bag-making experience was a good one...I decided to tackle something I never thought I would...making a PATTERN!! I looked a little nuts with all of that tape and paper laying everywhere, folding, creasing, and trying to pretend it was fabric...but it worked!
I had bought some fabric that I was totally in love with, as well as some burlap that I wanted to turn into a "beachy" bag. I just knew I had to make this bag with those! The pattern is in shambles in my sewing room, but I'm hoping to revive it so I can make some more! I love how it turned out!
Thanks to my wonderful husband for pointed out once I was "done" that it needed something else. He suggested a Monogram (such a good southern man) but you can't really monogram burlap, so I decided it would get a bow. After the bow went on I realized that no good southern bag is without either a bow or a monogram! I should have thought of that...but I'm glad he did!
It reminds me of strolling along the coast...hence the name Carolina Breeze
