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! :)


  1. I love the yellow fabric. Considering you've never made a bag before.. it looks pretty much perfect to me!

  2. Je hebt een gave om prachtige spullen te maken!

  3. I really love it. Wish I could sew something, but my sewing machine is broken.

    Good luck with the spring.

    Greetings Izzy
