Dear Laura,

Well. I have no excuse. I am just a bum blogging partner, that's the bottom line. :) However, it's now my turn to hold down the fort while you're on vacation, so I'll do my best!

Thanks for posting in my absence! It was such a super-fun day, and having you there as a bridesmaid made it all the better.

I had six weeks off after the end of med school, during which I got married, went on a honeymoon, and moved house. Despite all that, I found lots of time for crafting! I think I have fodder for at least a few entries on here!

First up is the surprise project that I actually worked on over a few months: the fabulous bridesmaid's handbags! I decided to make a handbag for each of my lovely bridesmaids, all from the same pattern but with different fabrics for each. These bags were my first ever from-a-pattern sewing projects, and I think they turned out pretty well!

The pattern is tiny happy's shoulder bag. I modified it to use fat quarters and be more of a handbag, an idea that I stole from someone who had left a comment on tiny happy's blog post with the pattern. Thanks tiny happy!

Hope you're having a wonderful time in Japan!

That is such a wonderful gift! I SO wish that I was sewing back then - and that I would have thought of something that nice. :o)
