It's in the Bag!

Last week I was able to surprise my secret sister at Splitcoast with a selection of goodies based on the Banishing the Winter Blues theme. Remember, one of the categories was to include 'Blue Jeans'. My husband and I came up with the same idea... to create a bag for Maggie.

I used a pair of my Old Navy jeans, cutting them off right at the top of the legs and putting a 3" gusset in the bottom. I didn't gusset the sides so it wasn't 'too' full. I lined the bag with the same bandana sytled fabric you see for the waist belt. To finish it off I removed the waistband and belt loops from a matching pair of jeans to create the handle. I added 2 belt loops on the sides - one on either side of the side seam and attached a D ring to run the waistband/ handle through. It had been awhile since I'd sat down to the sewing machine and the first time using the extension table Bob made for me last month before he left for the boat.

Next week I'll be showing off new kitchen and bathroom curtains... with a story to share :0)
