Style Stitches Cosmo bag!

I suppose it is a bit off to showcase the bag I made on Sunday after the post I put up on Sunday morning, but I think I needed a project that was a little more familiar.  That…and, I sewed this up during naptime.  So no mommy guilt.  Except for the playroom still strewn with every toy they have.  I ignored that.

But lookie what I made with my coveted Sherbet Pips by the lovely Aneela:

I raw edge appliqued on my nieces initials.  I found the perfect giant sleepover bag out of Style Stitches from Amy Butler to accompany the PJs I made for her 10th birthday next week.  I actually think I like the back of the bag more than the front…

The pattern was complicated (sheeish, 6 pages of instruction for one bag)…but worth it.  The directions were very well written and I would definitely make this bag again.  I hesitated to make something from this book because I found the book design completely over-worked and really do kind of object that she only ever uses her own fabrics in the bag samples.  It’s a lot to look at.  But that’s just me.  At the end of the day, I love the bag.  If you fancy making your own, consider joining in this fun Sew-Along.  Cosmo ended up being really fun to make and in my world full of boy, it was wonderful to make something so very, very pink!

    OK! Enough already! I gotta get me some of that Sherbert Pips fabric before it becomes yet another line I regret not getting :)

  2. The happy, newly 10-year old niece absolutely loves all of that pretty, pretty pink. The oversize button on the front is the design winner, and her mom loves the interior pockets, unless she forgets to unpack her dirty socks.

    Are you going to show the jammies? They are positively feminine and totally tween.

    In her words, they are both ‘adorable.’ Thank you, Auntie Susanne.

    This turned out so cute, I love this fabric line! I’m sure your niece will love it & it will make a perfect sleepover bag. I’m amazed you got it done during nap time! I worked on mine for an entire day (off & on) and still wasn’t able to get it quite finished, and that didn’t even include cutting & fusing! I’m so glad you joined the Sew Along & look forward to what you make from the rest of the book.
