Fab Find Friday

Another Fab Friday is here.
This one is for all my sewing friends.  I love myself a free tutorial online.  This week, though, I caved and bought some patterns from a site (my fab find) called I Think Sew.  The patterns there are very cute, very cheap and come in PDF format immediately after you purchase.  There are also free tutorials and patterns that you can get once you become a member (for free).  I received a girls apron, girls tiered skirt, girls pants, kiddie zipper pouch and small clutch pattern.

I bought the pattern for this bag which I made last night.  It is YUGE.  That's right.  Huge with a Y.  Chicago style. It's called the Valentina Bag and it's on sale for 3.50 through April 18th. It's really easy to make and would be a good project for a semi-beginner (is that a new word?)

I am going to use it as a beach bag this summer but I used it today because it was dreary out and I needed some fun colors.  I put in a diaper pack, Bible, wallet, water bottle, notebook, makeup pouch and it didn't even make a dent!

All my stuff with plenty of room to spare.  My son could probably fit in there!

Opens wide!  Looks like a shark's jaws.  Look out!

Happy sewing!
