Silence and Sewing
The boys went to Mass with Mike this evening. Since I'll be at two Masses tomorrow I stayed home.....alone. Yum. Silence is golden. I turned on NPR, listened to the news and created this little bag. I created a pattern from an old bag that I wore out. I love this size and shape. It's sturdy, big enough to hold a book (the only reason to carry a purse, in my opinion) but not so big as to be cumbersome.
If the fabric looks familiar that's because I made the body out of a pair of my husband's old khaki's. The fabric is fabulous, nice and broken in but yet sturdier than cotton. Love. Now back to that silence....
