The Sunny Sunday Sunshine Bag ~ update

Remember the Sunny Sunday Sunshine Bag I made last week? I was pretty happy with the result, until I started to feel like something was missing... I tried to figure out what could be wrong with a very happy, very sunny tote, and then it hit me: it was just too damn sunny! ;)

So I decided to add...

... some RAIN!

Okay, so it's cute, yellow, dotted rain...

... but it's rain nonetheless! And you know what the weird part is? I think this bag just got a whole lot sunnier because of it! :)

The Sunny Sunday Sunshine Bag!

I don't know if it was the sun or the scent of spring in the air, but today I felt like making a bag!!

Considering the fact I've never made a bag before, I decided to start slow and make myself the first (and easiest) bag from Lisa Lam's The Bag Making Bible: the Versatile Book Bag.

So off I went choosing fabrics...

... measuring, cutting, pinning, ironing...

... and sewing!

While Boots slept in the sun...

... I made a modest bag...

... with sunny handles...

... and sewed them together.

The result? One very happy...

... very bright...

... Sunny Sunday Sunshine Bag!!! :)

If I wasn't ready for Spring before, I surely am now! :)

It ain't easy being green!

Oh my!! I've been such a bad blogger lately!!! Due to back pain I tried to spend as little time in front of my computer as possible, which did wonders for my back... but not so much for my blog :)

So here's 5 random things I've been up to these past few weeks (for some odd reason all containing the colour green... ;)!

1. Me and my new macro lens are still obsessed with dewdrops...

2... and cats :)

3. I decided to declare my Love For Dots by buying this super cute Cath Kidston saddle bag! :)

4. Pimping my iPhone :)

5. And last but not least:
