Update: Only Messy Karen will appreciate this but
I'm SO NOT KIDDING. Random Drawing #29. That was you. I gasped when it landed on you. Then I had to consider repicking because you would totally think I did it on purpose.
I didn't. It's just good karma. Wow. You are the ultimate Super Trooper.
Thanks everyone. That was so funny to read!
We love Taffy Talk Thursdays, do you?
Did you even know there was a name for these weekly giveaways??
Today I'm so super duper excited.
Do I sound 12? I feel 12.
Do you like lots of questions this early in the morning? I do.
During the Christmas break, Corrie had a bee in her bonnett that she wanted to make Amy Butler's Frenchy Bag. Well, since I am the expert in the family when it comes to patterns and sewing, she looked to me to lead the way. I did, after all, make her several shirts and dresses in middle school. They were even good enough for school pictures. I know. I'm good. Real good. Wish I had her yearbook to show you the lovely fashions.
She had done all the hard, obnoxious work....like cutting out the pattern pieces. I just had to read the directions and figure it out. But I'm such a super trooper, like Abba, that I jumped at the chance to figure it out. Corrie chose County Fair Home Dec fabric which I heartily agreed to because we didn't need interfacing!!! But even with interfacing............pretty easy.
HOW CUTE IS THIS???
It has deep pockets inside. Choose between long handles or short. I prefer long to give me that swingy-Charlie girl stride.
Easy. Well written directions. This was so much fun to make. We started dreaming about all the people we wanted to make them for. It would be the most stylish diaper bag. I'm thinking one for my daughter's piano books, one for me for my knitting/crocheting and another one for me for my purse on Tuesdays and then another one for me to take to church. Oh, then all of those other ones I was going to make for everyone else.
Check out the kits in the store. All the thinking has been done for you!
So if you want to be a Super Trooper and try one of these bags for yourself, you're in luck! The Frenchy Bee Pattern is up for giveaway today.
You must be living right.
I know I am.
Leave us a comment about..............being a super trooper?
Will that be too hard for you CJ?
Can you handle it?
I think you can. I know I can.
And if I can, anyone can.
What does being a super trooper mean?
I don't know. You tell me.
Random Drawing later tonight. Good Luck and Good Trooping.
