"Layla" bag

So here is the creation I was talking about. I hope it isn't bad to love what I made, but I really was pleased with how it came out, and you know I am a bag lover if you know me at all. Here is how it all began:
A friend has asked about bags and I did not feel quite confident enough yet to tackle that project...for one thing I know they take a little bit of fabric and I couldn't bear to think of ruining beautiful fabric. One day I will try it, I promise. But I asked her if she would consider having me embellish a pre-made one. She is the best because she agreed and told me I could do what I wanted with it. So, the creating began and this is how it ended.

A ruffled side

Her baby's name on the other

It was kind of difficult sewing on thick canvas. I broke a needle once and I really wasn't sure how it would come out, but there was a great sense of satisfaction when I completed it because I loved it! Sara said she did too, so it was SUCCESS!
