A stolen moment.....

I've been sewing A LOT lately,
but nothing for myself in quite a while.
Last night I finished up a large custom order
and found myself with an hour to myself at the end of the day.
I've been wanting to make this "Tammy" bag
designed by Madam Samm of "Sew We Quilt"
ever since I took part in the Tammy blog hop.
You can see my first bag here.

It's a totally FTS (fun to sew) pattern
and I finished this project up in about an hour.
That didn't include the time to cross stitch of course :)
I stitched my pattern on Osnaburg and then 
used  lightweight iron on interfacing to give it some stability.

I found this pre-washed red and white polka dot linen on Etsy
and knew it would be perfect for this bag :)
These bags hold tons and I'm so excited 
to finally have a new home for my nail polish
and manicure supplies!

I don't often sew for myself so it's fun
to have something lovely all for me :)
Hope you find some time to sew for yourself too!!!


  1. Ohhhhh my word Karen, you know I would love this it is red, white, black, nail polish, lady like…adorable…x

  2. Boy howdy WOW! Just saying...this one of the cutest purse that I have ever seen :-)! Nice job Obi Wan! My conversion timetable for completing this project would be 2 weeks vs your 1 hour :-).

  3. So cute! I use to cross stitch some time ago and this design is so cool. The bag will make you smile every time you'll use it.

  4. an hour? are you magic or something?
