mad dash of sewing

Lena's bag, originally uploaded by homebirthmama.

The day before we left for our beach trip, I felt a strong urge to create something just for Lena for the trip. I ended up drawing up this pattern, made a quick "draft", then grabbed two of my favorite fat quarters and this was the outcome!! I made 4 pencil pockets on the inside for her Ferby pencils and a larger pocket for her small notebook. My favorite detail was the ladybug linen ribbon and wooden button on the front. (Click on the picture to take you to my flickr page to see a closeup of the front in my photostream!)
