I love every minute I got to spend loving my babies and goofing around with them. Hanan right now is delightfully full of antics, always warming my heart with her vivaciousness, smiles and gurgling laughs. Aisha is growing up into a softhearted, beautiful little lady. I just wish I have more time to spend with them. Like every working mother, my biggest dream is to be home, where my heart is. But...well, there's a lot of buts, let's not go into them.
This weekend, I sewed two skirts (again), and surprisingly, managed to finished my first ever tote bag, yeay!!
I used this tutorial. Real easy and I like the midi-like pattern, not too full yet very feminine.

Well, this one's for Hanan. But she refused to wear it! Oh well, one of her tantrum days...sighh...maybe next time :)
The Tote Bag
Fabric : Heather Bailey
My first ever tote! Well, I'm more of a garment sewer as I've always thought sewing bags are just too much a hassle. But Aisha had been asking for a bag for few weeks already saying that she wants a nice one to bring to her extra classes etc. So I tried and made this one. It turned out HUGE!! The dimension is definitely not for a 9-year old lol!
But this project converted me! Not difficult at all and so satisfying. I'm gonna make more bags yeah! Aisha wants a smaller one so I'm already cutting another bag. Watch out for that one!
See how the bag went down below her knee erkk
