Love, Love, Love!

I am obsessed with my runaround bag.  I got hooked on the blog Noodlehead because I asked one of my friends who also sews/quilts what sewing blogs she likes and this one was at the top of the list.  When I saw her pattern for the Runaround Bag, I immediately wanted to make it.  It took a while to choose the fabric I wanted to use, but I finally settled on this one (Amy Butler Midwest Modern Martini) for the exterior with a gray interior.

I love gray and yellow together.  So I picked my fabric and got to work on it during my last few weeks of maternity leave.  I have been using it for almost 8 months now and I love it!  It is the perfect size for all my junk belongings.  This was my second attempt at a bag and first attempt at a zipper pocket, so I am pretty proud of myself.

Check out that zipper action!

I like the bag so much I decided to make one for my sister for her birthday.  When I got to her house she saw my bag and commented on how much she liked it (isn’t that the best when you get a gift for someone and they randomly mention how much they like that thing or want it and you are secretly jumping up and down on the inside).  Here is the bag I made for her:

Even Elmo (aka my niece) likes it!
