My First Reversible Bag!

First of all, I cannot believe I made this.

Second, I can't believe how easy it was!


I followed a great tutorial here, on this site:



Cindy, the host of Skip-to-my-Lou, showcases all sorts of things to make life fun - from recipes to party ideas, to sewing patterns and more!

I found these two coordinating fabrics on the clearance rack
at Jo-Anne Fabrics. How great is that?

Then, since I knew I wanted to make a reversible bag,
I decided to add another factor - adding the fabric to both sides.
So I cut a small strip off of both colors and stitched them together.

I ironed the pieces flat...


Then I proceeded to follow the tutorial directions.


I have to recommend that if you sew, or if you think you might
want to sew, you should really check out Cindy's site!

Happy Crafting!

I hope you get the chance to be creative today!
