Finding the chic in everyday life

I love eating, cooking, crafting, zumbaing, ice skating, and lots of other randomness.

First generation organic.

Since December 2008, I've lost 15 lbs and I hope to continue my healthy habits of nutritious eating + frequent, fun exercising.

looks great Diana, maybe I should raid my fabric stash too lol


It's gorgeous! I just need about 15 of those for a trip to the store. :p

Diana, you have made my day! I love that you were able to understand my attempt at the tutorial and that your bag turned out so cute! I also loved seeing your candle lit sewing area. I'm always happy when someone can use any of my tutorials. Thanks for letting me see your bag. I like the longer handles. I think I'll make some more like that.

Maybe I need to pull out my sewing machine and see if I can repair it so I can make one of these! That is tres cute :)


OH MY GOODNESS YOU ARE AMAZING!!! Very talented!!! I wish I could sew, my mother in law is amazing, she makes us all sorts of things. You should make those and sell :) Id buy!


This is so cute!! I don't have a sewing machine but I've been thinking of getting one off of craigslist. Thanks for the idea!

Just wanted to add in case anyone was interested that the lady who made this tutorial sells the bags in her etsy shop here:

the pleasures of homemaking

I came over from Homemaking Dreams. Your bag turned out so good! I love the fabric you chose!



Love it! What a fabric stash - I have never heard of such. Teehee. Hugs.


Great bag Diana! Your conversations with your Dad sound so fun. I've been thinking about making my own bags -- I even have the fabric -- I just need the time. Need. More. Time!


That came out great. I'm all in to re-using and re-purposing right now. I so want to buy a sewing maching, I just need great ideas to justify the cost.

I'm having a contest on my blog, my flip flop broke and I need ideas of how to re-purpose it. Help me out.
