Sewing on my Birthday

Sewing is always a good thing and I was able to enjoy my sewing room tonight. Cake is a good thing, I was able to enjoy cake (2 pieces) on my birthday. Family is a great thing, I was able to have dinner with my family (except college girl). So all around it was a great birthday.

What did I sew? Something for college girl to give her Little Sister in her sorority. A new purse from this cute fabric, Robert Kaufman's Hooty Owls . It is sold out at Sew Mama Sew and college girl loved it. Owls are important to their sorority, what is it? I can't remember, not mascot but something. I am sure there are some Chi-O's out there that can tell me. Anyway, I found it on ebay, hurray. Sew Mama Sew is getting more in mid-October but college girl needs it my October 7th.

Here it is:

Inside - BTW, the Hooty Owl matches some Amy Butler exactly!!

Personalized the handle.

Now to make one for college girl, the handle on it will say Chi O Big.

    It was hubby's birthday, too, but I didn't get any sewing time at all in honor of the occasion!

    I love the bag - beautiful fabric combinations and a great style. The embroidered handle is a clever addition and makes it such a special, personal gift.

  5. Happy Birthday! Love that bag - the prints are awesome.

    That bag is adorable. Your daughter's little sis is sure to love it!

    I just ordered an embroidery machine. Should arrive tomorrow. It was bad enough before but I may never leave my sewing room now!

  8. Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a good one...cake is always good. Beautiful bag, too. I'm sure Little will love it!

    Great bag. Your dd is so lucky to get matching purses for her and her little sis. I love all the pockets inside it and the fabrics are gorgeous.

    Happy Belated Birthday!
