Needed Something New

Earlier today I got a fancy new haircut and I decided that called for a fancy new bag.

My inspiration was an Anthropologie bag (of course). But really I've seen this general design all over the internet. It was fun and easy to make and I love how wide the bag opens so you can actually find something inside it!



I finally cut into some fabric I got during my last Ikea trip to make this bag. I love the weight of it and luckily I have enough to make more!





I was a little worried about carrying a white bag in the winter - is that a horrible fashion faux pas? Clinton, Stacy, are you out there?

They don't call it winter white for nuthin' Reall great bag, I love the shape and the fabric. It's a two bag day, evidently.

Yes - I want to see the haircut! I'm getting mine done tomorrow:) And Clinton and Stacy most definitely say - go for white whenever you want!

That's such a cute bag! I wouldn't worry too much about Stacy and Clinton, I've been making big fashion no-no's for a while and still haven't attracted them!!

I love the bag! I sure hope that white is okay, because I am still using the black and white one you made me... It's still my favorite.

Wow! Great looking bag, Roxanne. Ikea definitely has some cool fabric and I love the style of bag you chose to make from it.
