Sewing, Sewing, and the Bag I Won

I've been a little under the weather lately, but I've found time to sneak a little sewing in here and there.  I whipped up a cute apron that came in my "Poor Mindy" box a while back.  It was an easy one where the pattern is printed right onto the material.  I think it turned out really cute.  It has a kind of vintage feel to it, and it is a full apron which I need 'cause this girl is a messy cook. 

I also made another diaper bag, and I love the lining in this one.  As a matter of fact I wish I had kept it to line a bag for myself.  It was one of my end of the bolt bargain buys from the shop hop last month.

And I finally took some pictures of the bag I won from Becky's Sew in Stitches Blog.  I love the fabric!  It's reversible which I also love so you can change it up when ever you want to.  
Here it is filled with my stuff.  It has the greatest hidden pocket right at the top by the handle so I can quickly get to my phone, debit card, or tissues without having to plunder through everything else.  As an added bonus, she sent this matching tissue holder, so wipe my not so dainty nose and be trendy doing it.  The bag is soft so you can fold it up and stick it in another purse to use for a market bag as well.  Thanks Becky I just love it!  If you haven't been there you should check out her blog.

  1. Your "Poor Mindy" apron is so cute! I have some very similar fabric but not a pre-printed apron! pre-printed is how I learned to sew Barbie clothes way back in the 60's.

    I think your diaper bags are phenomenal! I may have to commission you!

    And isn't that bag you won totally adorable?!?! heeheehee (For those wondering - yeah, I made that!) My absolute fav that I ever made! Glad you like it too.
