The other day, my friend Angie* brought over some deliciously sweet fabric, perfect for summer. The little popsicles and ice cream cones popped perfectly against the aqua base. I instantly fell in love, the fabric felt so cheerful, so delicate. I’m rarely delicate, so this was a fun change for me.
We got to working. She had a project in mind, which she will tell you about later, but I was pretty much directionless. (What’s new, right?)
While she started cutting and sewing, I sketched and talked her ear off. I decided to make a tiny crossbody that would be perfect for August evenings. She continued making progress and after I took a break to make us some lunch, I got started. I decided to add gold chain and accents, I think it makes it feel extra cheerful.
Tah dah!** Here’s a little bag that is perfect for my essentials (phone, wallet, keys and coconut lip balm) and lets my hands be free to cause a ruckus and do not-so-delicate things. Such as spill BBQ sauce all over myself, because I won’t set down my ice tea.
**I know I should have ironed this before taking pictures, but it was more believable if I didn’t. You know me too well.
