I copied this bag from a similar one I have, but mine is solid black with little white polka dots.
Instead of using interfacing I just lined it with the green canvas that I used for the top section and handles. There are two simple pockets on the interior in the striped fabric.
This year as usual I took the kids up to Chicago.
This is how the trip started…
Yep, I crashed the car on the way up. Luckily aside from a little stiffness in the neck and back, everyone was ok. Just a little shaken up and scared!
That thing hanging down would be the car’s computer! It still ran fine and even the automatic doors still worked after the accident!
As you can tell by the damage to the front of the car that the accident was my fault.
I looked down for a second as traffic came to a screeching halt. I didn’t halt soon enough and crashed into the back of a very nice brand new Honda Accord.
Lucky for him we both have insurance. Unlucky for me that we only had liability! Its a complete loss, but hopefully Mallory can help revive another van.
Other than that and 3 inches of snow on Saturday, we had a good time. I got to have lunch and shop with two of my closest friends who are both preggo!
Piper Ann got this adorable cashmere dress when she was born. I knew I’d keep it as an heirloom piece until I took it out of storage to look for some other things.
My laundry skills are extremely lacking as you can see in these photos. The puke actually ate holes in the dress. : (
I love the detail on the trim!
I have a feeling I didn’t actually wash this by the stains on the front. They could have oxidized over time?? If they were’nt there, I probably would have just cut off the sleeves, added a ruffled trim, and made it into a jumper.
Instead I cut up the whole thing and made flowers out of the cashmere, GASP, I know!
I’ve been seeing these belts all over the blogosphere and decided to make one for myself.
I’m currently working on a large project for my friend’s mom. When I’m done with that I’m hoping to make a few of these for my shop (which is currently empty), but stay tuned.
Today is the beginning of your 37th year of life.
I’m lucky enough to have spent twelve of your 37 with you.
