Bag Lady

My photography class is on Mondays. I have two other classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Anyone who has a class schedule like this will know that it is a pain to transfer your books into and out of your bag just so you can go to a different class. Or, maybe you are  much more organized than me, and have always had more than one bag:) Either way, I needed another bag for my photography class. Since it is just one book and a notebook, pens, folder, etc. for my photography class, my regular book bag is too big. So, a simple tote bag it is!

This bag is made from a pair of jeans, and some scrap fabric. I used up almost all of the jeans; I even used the waistband for a strap. At first I wasn’t going to use it, because it was really curved. But after I sewed it on and put it over my shoulder, the curved strap actually helps keep it on my shoulder better!

Happy Early Hallmark Holiday

I have mixed feelings about Valentines Day. I don’t know if it’s the best holiday ever, or an excuse to sit around and eat chocolate all by your lonesome….. what do you guys think??

In the spirit of Valentines Day, I present you with this shirt! I made it from a larger shirt (the diagonal lines were already there)and the heart patch is from another shirt. If it wasn’t pink and red I’d wear it!;)
