Weekender

As promised, here are some pictures of my new weekender bag that I finished just in time to take on my trip.



I used the county fair line by Denyse Schmidt, and just love the colors and patterns. I wish I had some helpful tips to give about making the bag. Unfortunately all I can say is that I'll never make another one... ever.... for as long as I live. But I wish the rest of you the best of luck when you attempt to make one!



I have a new photo program so I'm playing around with the photo editing. I'm not sure what I think about them yet, I need more practice... that's for sure. (Isn't she the cutest dog?)



And finally whats a zipper without a zipper pull? I got this one from the shop because it was just destined to belong to my weekender.

This is why I don't carry bags. I don't like what is out there and making one scares the (*&^ out of me! LOL

But yours is lovely. Such smart colors to choose and the zipper pull is adorable!

So is the dog by the way!
