What a week this has been! Later, I will post a bit about my weekend away, but for now, I thought I'd share a recent sewing project.
Last year, my daughter entered the wild, exciting world of middle school, proudly carrying a Mudd messenger bag that she was very proud of. Within a month, her bag was stolen. Of course, it was not the only messenger bag of its description at the school, so recovering it was out of the question. Our solution was to make her a one-of-a-kind bookbag. Since last year's bag was over a year old and had served its purpose admirably, we decided that it was time for a brand new bag (pun completely intended). Enter the Multi Tasker Tote pattern from Anna Maria Horner.
She loves it! I have to admit that I fell in love with her bag and made myself one as well. Then I made another one. They are kind of addictive that way. Her bag has already been to the beach, which kind of makes up for the long days sitting in a locker. Mine is a bit less well traveled, but has proved itself nicely in my how-much-stuff-can-I-stuff-in-my-bag challenge.
