The San Diego Bag

Packing for our trip to San Diego... going without a baby... need a bag! All I have are diaper bags (plus a few purses which are already in boxes). So...I went to my favorite place... and found this for inspiration:
So I found whatever scraps of fabric I hadn't packed (Ryan is laughing at me because I said I was done with small projects after Easter...). Anyway I came up with this:

I wish I could give you a tutorial, but I'm not even sure how I made this, much less how I would tell you. I just started cutting and pinning and sewing and ripping until it looked how I wanted it to. So...Hurray! A new summer purse just for Mommy! Now I have to focus on packing...
I did want to say that I will be on holiday(don't you think that's a much better word than vacation?) all next week so I probably won't be posting, but I will tell you all about it when I get back. I did set up an appointment to go visit here on Friday of next week, and I am so excited!!!! Anyway- go make yourself a new summer bag!


  1. amazing bag! you are assured a great time with that on your shoulder:)

  2. I am in love with that Anthro bag too but didn't think there was any way to copy ... yours turned out great!!!
    BTW - "vacation" is such an American term... here in Australia we say "holiday" and it definitely sounds better. ;)
