Flea Market Bag
So, I decided I ought to make myself a Mother's Day present, too. LOL During the 12Days of Christmas sale at the Fat Quarter Shop, I picked up a bunch of Grand Revival Designs patterns 50% off. This Flea Market Bag pattern was one of them. I also snagged this Tanya Whelan fabric at 50% off. Have I mentioned my love of the FQS lately? I love that site. They have such nice customer service.
I love this bag. I love the size of it. I think the strap is cute. My husband says the material reminds him of a grandma. I told him I liked it anyway. What a skunk.
I would recommend this pattern for anyone. It is quick to make and has lot of options. A girl must have options! There are at least 4 different purses in this one pattern. And, she shows you lots of colorways, which lets your imagination roam a bit.
Moving on to an even cuter subject, Buddy. Buddy is going through this super hero phase. On our way to swimming the other night, he had a bit of a show in the back seat.
Here is his villian/bad guy pose:
Here is the good guy/super hero to fight back:
Yet another bad guy shows up:
Can't you tell the difference? LOL I just nod my head.
We have been taking swim lessons again this year. It started 9 weeks ago as a bit of a struggle. He was melting down at each lesson about getting his face wet. He was deathly scared of going in the deep end with the life guards.
9 weeks later, he is floating in the deep end all by himself (life guard was right there, never fear).
Look at the big boy putting his own head in the water!
I just love this kid.
