a bag and a blanket

I'm finally posting pictures!

My sister came over a week (or so) ago and requested I make her a bag from a pattern she found on it's the first time I've ever attempted to create anything with a pattern before. I think it worked out pretty well.
The stripes on the fabric gave me a little bit of a the next bag I do will be with a cherry fabric for me.

In other craft news...I finally finished a blanket for Lyndon. It may not look that complicated...but I tore it apart and restarted it so many times I lost count. Thankfully I'm finished now so I can start working on other things.
Next on my list of things to do: a second bag (as mentioned above) and finishing a Stars themed blanket for Lyndon/Daddy. The Stars blanket has only been pulled apart 3 times so far...I'm hoping that will be it!

I love the bag! Definitely need to make some for myself! I am a big fan of the cherry material too... And the blanket is great too! Makes me want to start another one now. I'm so glad you found time to post- can't wait to see all your future creations!

I just have to say, again, I really love that blanket for Lyndon!! It's not your typical baby blanket and it looks completely awesome! I love the stitch, the colors, everything. It's definitely got me motivated to start another one myself!!! BUT- I have to finish TJ's cross stitch picture while watching TV right now! Then, you'll have to help me start another blanket! :)

HA! I just went to put in the "word verification" in order to post this comment and it ends in TJ! :)
