Early Bird Christmas Crafting.....Does it matter if I've made it for me ???

I've been enjoying all the gift making I've been doing over the past couple of months for family and friends but decided I needed to make something for myself this month for christmas.I've had the fabric all cut up and ready to sew this bag together for a little while now and just needed to complete the stitcheries to be able to finally put it together which I finished yesterday and then decided to just keep at it and put it together.I made my handles shorter than the pattern as I want to use this bag to carry all my stuff to work on a daily basis like my lunch,a crafty project a book or magazine and let me tell you it will certainly be big enough to carry all these things at the same time it's enormous! I've enjoyed making this bag and I think a couple more are going on my to-do list for future presents.

This bag is called the "Baseco Mahai Kita" tote and is sold through Dawn Hays blog just click on this link and it will explain where all the proceeds from the sale of this pattern goes to help those less fortunate than us.

A well deserved present. It certainly looks a good size bag for all those daily bits and pieces we need to "lug" along.

Good that you are taking care of yourself by making something you can use. The bag looks like a good and useful one and pretty too!

Enjoy your little gift-for-yourself, Barb! It is really good to have a self-made present for you while working on others'.
