When I think back at all the beautiful purses I've seen my Mom and Mary sew from scratch, I CRINGE at the thought that I don't have pictures. Sewing a bag from scratch takes several hours and lots of patience (both of which seem to be consumed by my five month old and twenty-nine year old). Therefore I've been focusing on premade items lately. I love finding embroiderable bags for a good price. Cosmetic and tote bags that have already been made make nice gifts when personalized. Here are some pictures of bags from the past year!
