Fixed My Vegas Bag!

If you read my July Currently post, you will recall my bland, yet adorable bag that I ordered from Zazzle for my upcoming trip to Vegas. I asked for your suggestions on how to cuten it up, I listened, and I fixed it this afternoon while the twins were napping!

It began with my logo and was ok, but it was just....missing something!

So, I added some coordinating quatrefoil design fabric to the handles, a ruffle around the top, and a cute flower!

I also lined the inside and added pockets for my phone, (that's a MUST) a pen, and anything else I may need access to quickly!

I took about a cajillion photos as I was working because I was going to take you through the whole thing, but come on, we are an instant gratification world.  I know you just want to see the finished product!  And I'm not a sewing blogger. :)

Well, there you have it!  I'd sure love to hear your thoughts on it!


  1. First of all, loved meeting you at the conference! It was so funny that in the whole of America you would live so close to my sister-in-law. We definitely have to meet up when I visit Dallas this December.

    Second, I LOVE YOUR BAG! It is so cute and you are so smart to ass pockets. I had a giant jumble in the bottom of mine. So smart! This is why we have to be blogger friends :)

    Have a safe trip back home!

  2. I loved meeting you and your bag was so adorable! Glad you posted about it! :)
