It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I last made something for myself, and an even more embarrassingly long time since I last sewed something for myself. Our Christmas tree skirt this year? I wrapped a bath towel around the base of the tree and then draped 2.25 yards of fabric over top. (And you know what? It looks gorgeous and voluminous and I saved myself about 45 minutes of designing, cutting and sewing a custom tree skirt :) Hey, works for me!)
But I’ve definitely missed sewing something for myself. One night (last week? who can keep track of time anymore when you have a nearly-crawling infant) Zack was working late so I used the excuse of a quiet house with all the space I wanted to spread out and sew. And sew I did! I grabbed this sewing book, a couple cuts of fabric, my pins, a bunch of strap material and a fancy gold zipper. It felt amazing to create something just for fun. My free time right now is super limited, so it made me appreciate this evening of creativity all the more. I’m sure you feel the same way, right?
What have you made for yourself recently that totally fueled you?
Do you want to see more photos of this bag? Perfect, because I am really, realllllly excited to share them soon :)
