Purse tutorial!

Hello Friends!
(My dh raises his eyebrows when I call you friends, but now that I have met many of you in person I know that we are REALLY friends!)


So, I forgot to mention that I have a project up on Moda Bakeshop today.


I made the bag 2 months ago, but couldn't show you because the fabrics won't be released until next month.

I gave this bag to my Sis-in-law for a diaper bag. It is a large bag, but it cinches in on the sides to look smaller. Go visit, and leave me a comment there so I look like I have friends.

In other exciting news. My beautiful Totally Pink Barbie has contracted a serious illness. Not a virus....worse! The hard drive DIED! They are sending me a new one in a few days. Fortunately I've only had her a few weeks, so she didn't have a ton saved in her (now defunct) brain.

Guess I'd better go raid the trick-or-treat buckets while the kids are in school. I love me some Milk Duds!

It's official: You have worse computer luck than I do now. I'm sorry your pretty new laptop died...well, the harddrive. That's nice of them to replace it so quickly though :)

My husband also finds it funny when I talk about my friend Lola in Utah. So I understand, and I consider you my friend.

Cute Bag.

Saw the bag on MBS, it is just adorable and would make a great diaper bag. Bummer about Barbie, good thing she was new. Hope the milk duds were good!

My kids do the same with me about my on-lines "friends". They scold me everytime I meet someone from Blogville!
I have hubbie blogging too now and we went to an art show out of town to meet one of HIS "friends" the other day....heehee. I now have him addicted too! The kids told us we are stressing them out and because of this they will need therapy! Whoo Hoo...payback!

I saw your tutorial yesterday on my visit to the bakeshop. Cute bag! Where can I score the Lola purse pattern? I want it!

Barbies are seldom reliable. Always losing their accessorieis...shoes, purses. But they are so pretty to look at!

How big is each square of the shopper? I see you cut out a 4 1/4 " square at the corners yet I thought each of the six squares was only 5" .. can you explain please? I'm not a quilter but love the bag and would make it of one fabric if I could figure the dimensions.
