a bag for sister

I finished this a week ago, but waited to post it until Sister had seen the bag in person. I originally intended the bag to look like this:But it came out looking like this:

Which, sure, was the general idea of the original design. In person, however, it wasn't looking very impressive. Or even decent. The interfacing was acting up all crazy and the bag turned into a stiff, uneven toaster cover. So ladies and gents, I present to you PLAN B:

A semi-reversible spring tote, complete with pockets for the cell phone, a pen and pencil and sunglasses. And some green ribbon detailing. To be honest, I didn't want to give it away to Sister. But, ya know, I did. 'Cuz that's how we roll. Enjoy.


  1. Thank you so much for the bag, sister. I mucho heart it! The compliments keep rolling in. I respond by smiling and saying thanks, my sister made it, see and point out the lovely "made by christine" label. You should make yourself another one...then we can match.
