Sweet Summer Handbag, Anyone?

Wow!  What a fun/crazy/messy couple of weeks I've had!!  We have been to the Oregon Coast and back, to Park City, Utah and back, and fit piano, basketball, parties, races, and some sewing into the middle of all of it!! 

And now, to add a bit of fun to the mix, I'm doing a fun GIVEAWAY with SewSara.  We are giving away a FREE Yards and Yards PDF Pattern and a $10 SewSara credit to her Etsy shop!!!  Her blog is so filled with inspiration and amazing ideas.  You can find her right HERE.  Prepare for some fun ideas and inspiration.

AND, as if I needed more fun in my busy summer, I've been working on a new pattern for the Yards and Yards Shop.  I finally finished this baby and you can get it right HERE.  It's the sweetest summer handbag ever!!!  Perfect for those days out shopping or those outings with the kids.  Check out these pictures:



I saw a cute ruffle shirt and thought, "That would make a great handbag."  Do you ever do that?  I guess it's something about sewing... I see sewing patterns in everything.  Funny.  Anyhow, I'm off to more craziness.  Enjoy!!!
