I decided to try out Elizabeth's shoulder bag tutorial that was featured on the Sew, Mama, Sew blog. I made it as a gift for my son's classroom aide. I used Alexander Henry's "kleo" floral print for the bag, some solid pale pink for the handle and a coordinating dot for the lining. I love the fabric choices together. The bag was very simple and quick to make and would be a perfect project for a beginner. I do think that the opening, especially with the deep slits on the side, is pretty large and I worry that things will fall out of the bag. I think I would modify it some how if I made it again.
