I think what really spurred this was the discovery of the Pink Penguin blog. Seriously, the girl can sew! Plus, her style is totally what I like. I love the vintage, retro look and feel, as well as handmade items that don't look TOO handmade. The way I actually stumbled across her blog was through a newsletter I receive from Photojojo. They sent the link for making this cute camera bag.
Anyway, she has a great tutorial that I was finally able to use this week. I, of course, had to scour eBay for a good deal on cute fabric, wait for it and then find time to make it. I have to say I'm proud of my buttonhole and shaping the corners of the bias tape. I love it and have already received nice compliments on it (not that I was showing it off). And naturally, it's pink.
PS I'm baking some Ginger Sugar Cookies right now. If they turn out, I'll share the recipe here.
