Sling Bags

One of my daughters wanted a sling bag. I offered to make her one but that wasn't cool. So we shopped and shopped and she couldn't find anything she liked or was close to what she wanted. So I offered again. She didn't say yes, but she didn't say no.


So when we got home I showed her this pattern I had. Needless to say that was exactly what she wanted! So then she bugged me to go to the store to buy fabric. THAT wasn't hard to do!


The result? 2 bags for her and 1 for me! Tonight she told me that all her friends want one now too!

That is so cute! Funny, my kids went through a stage where anything homemade was "NOT COOL", but now they treasure any little thing I make them. Good job!!! You might have opened up a can of worms!

Guess Mom is cool after all, huh? That looks like a really cute pattern. Was it hard? (Couldn't be too bad if you whipped out three of them!) My daughter has asked for an Amy Butler Birdie Sling to take with her to college in the fall, but I'm scared of the pattern!

I like all three of your bags, but that cream one is really great! That would go with everything!
