Yippie!! Another bag done...

I feel pretty accomplished this week. I have another bag to add to my Etsy shop. Sometimes I get so lost in gardening that I forget to get other things done, but this week I have managed to do both! When I found this fabric, I just loved it. It's a Waverly fabric and the navy and cream are just so clean looking.

Here's a close up of the tie fabric. It is cream with a little white pattern on it. It is a very subtle pattern, but it works well with the navy bag. I like the tie on it too. I made another bag with a tie and I liked it so much I thought I'd make this one with the tie too.

Here's the inside. Again there is another cream fabric with a little white pattern. This one has little white flowers on it. I made pockets for all around the inside of the bag too. I just love pockets so all the small things we gals like to carry around won't get lost. There's a light board covered with fabric on the bottom to help keep the bottom flat. I quilted both the inside and outside in the same size diamond pattern. I hope you like my latest creation. I am so new at all of this and I need all the feedback I can get. I really enjoy sewing and making these bags is a fun way for me to earn a bit of spending money.
The weather has been pretty nice around here for the last few days. The temperatures have been staying right around 90 degrees. Since we really have no humidity here, that is pretty pleasant for the summer. We had one really bad week and I'm glad that is over. I hope everyone is having a great week...and now that this bag is done, I'm back to the drawing board for another one!

Love the bag! You've sure made a lot of pretty ones! Great photos of Stella, too. Your pictures of Big Bear brought back memories. I spent two weeks at a GS Encampment at Osito Rancho many years ago....my first taste of CA!

That bag is beautiful! I love Waverly, as you saw in my post. I have swags by them in my kitchen and just bought a new set when I change it out!
I am a WSonoma/Pottery Barn Outlet fan. I wait for the good bargains. And Christmas Tree Shops, which you don't have in CA, yet! :) They will come someday I am sure!
