bit more purple


I think I have told you before that I am not a lover of purple. Even though I did just buy that purple couch! But this fabric was just gorgeous and I could not resist it's vibrancy.

So I made this sweet purple library bag. I spent the day writing a pattern for it too. So much tougher than I thought it would be. It is fun and easy to sew, but hard for me to put it in words. I had to sew, and write and got a little frustrated. And walk away for a bit. But I did it!

It's also a reversible bag. And using two complimentary prints on the inside make it fun. It's big enough for you, or your girl, whenever you're ready for a sleepover, not just for a trip to the library.

If you would like to learn to sew this bag just visit The Tin Thimble and look up their class list for April. Or you can keep an eye on my etsy page and I will soon be sewing up a few more!


And be sure to visit the Vintage Sheet Blog. Where there is a daily giveaway and it is lots of fun!

I love totes, there's always something to bring along on our travels. This one has a little regal look to it, with the golds and purples!
