It occurred to me that instead of buying a new one that maybe I should learn how to sew and start making my own bags to my exact specifications. I can choose the fabrics, the hardware, the number of pockets, zipper or magnetic snap closure etc….
I found Lisa Lam’s blog and was inspired by her knowledge of bag making. She is so excited about the art of making bags, its a bit contagious.
My first bag that I finished last night is a tote called the “Flat Bottomed Girl” from her Bag Making Bible book. I was attracted to the tote page because the words “easy as pie” were on this particular page.
Here it is……so excited…..
I think I’m in love with making bags…..
