Mama's Got a Brand New Bag

Here is Sarah's very first completed sewing project. It's a hobo style purse bag that ties at the top. She was so excited to start and finish this bag yesterday that this morning she was up early cutting out pieces for a new bag! She learned to thread the sewing machine, cut out patterns, fuse interfacing, apply Velcro, rip stitches when the machine goes haywire and to use the serger. Whew! That's a lot for one day, but she did it and the look on her face when the bag was done was awesome!
And, yep, I get the first one -- sorry, no bidding and no under the table offers to buy it from me -- it's ALL MINE!

What is the print on it? Job well done Sarah!!
She needs to sale them on your blog. At least it could get her new fabric to play with.
