Flowers

This is my first before/after post. So many blogs out there are dedicated to the whole before/after conversations. I guess I just don't do much in the way of makeovers. Here goes my first one:

This bag was manly: so sturdy and grey. I loved the size and shape. I loved the inside zipper. What I did NOT love, was easy to fix - the Dickies label on the front and the dullness of it. Blah.

I have a wonderful friend named Katie. She sews, she cans, she sings, she climbs canyons. She rocks. ;} Check out her creations by clicking here. Once a month, she comes up with a craft idea, gets all the stuff together, makes a sample and invites everyone over to try it. I love these escapes where I can learn and hang out with my friends. Glorious.

My bag was the perfect fit for this month's project: fabric rosettes. Here is my made over bag, sporting two different looks:

The red/white/black rosette was not my doing. Credit for that one goes to Tiffanie. She's also amazing. My other amazing friends that were there with us were Megan, Dawn and Brandy. Next month you are ALL invited!

3 screams from the fans...:

Aw shucks...

I am so glad you came! And I LOVE the way that big flower turned out on that bag. And isn't Brandy fun?? I like her:) Can't wait for our drawing lesson next month...
