The Jenny Bag and the winners

I made this bag for a friend. She picked the fabrics. I think they’re Alexander Henry, but I bought them a very long time ago for a dress for Macy so I’m not quite sure.

The inside:

Tutorial and pattern here. It’s a little small (keep in mind I pack around a diaper bag called “MotherShip” for day to day use and take my opinion on that with a grain of salt). I also didn’t like how the straps were attached last. It’s a little sloppy for my liking. If I made it again, I’d attach them when I sewed the lining to the outer fabric.

Just for fun, a picture of Macy in the dress. 2 years is a long time in kid years.

The winners are….

Ambrosia (totally typed your actual name the first time), who guessed correctly when she said “Did you find it tangled around the rotating brush rod on your vacuum cleaner after it stopped sucking stuff up/rotating while you vacuumed your latest craft mess?” Indeed I did.


Jane, who said “BC’s belly button?”. However, I’m not flying to Phoenix to make her dinner. Sorry, Janer.

Pretty sure you both already have my email, so let me know what you want for your prizes!
