Weekender Bag

Just a quick update. Things are really crazy in our house right now. Work is super busy which I'm grateful for I just wish some of the deadlines weren't right on top of each other. Also I'm in charge of all the decorations with Brittany for the ward party. Also had to throw in the flu this week. I'm feeling better but my appetite isn't completely back.

Below are some photos of a bag I made with my mom in October. I've loved this bag ever since I saw it. Right now I still have a love/hate relationship with it. I love how cute it turned out but the memories are still too fresh from making it that I still shudder. This bag was not easy to put together by any means. I bet I easily spent over 15 hours just cutting out all the fabric. Crazy. So the thing I learned from this is if you see a bag that's cute and even if it costs over a $100, buy it. It's worth the cost trust me.
All the fabric was from Ikea. If you haven't checked out their fabric you should because they have some really cute stuff.Logan was being my bag model but then found his magna doodle.

That bag is so cute, handmade stuff is so fun to have however it might take a while for the memories of making it wear off before you think that!
