Traveling Bag

I decided I needed a new traveling bag, so this was the perfect time to make my purse from the guitar playing budda material I got for a $1 a yard in the walmart clearance bin.I love the material, click so you can see the close up of the buddha. And I also went to the store especially to get a big red button for the bag. I think I spent more on the button than the material.
The ribbon I had laying around from a previous bag in which I decided to use a more unisex ribbon. This is solely a diaper bag, no room for anything but diapers, wipes, and a changing bag.
I went all out, even has a matching clutch and I remember once again I hate zippers. I don't read directions I just make it up as I go, and zippers don't like that mentality. The clutch actually looks terrible, but I think the bag is very professional if I do say so myself.
Luckily my sister in law, danna taught me how to make bags like in this a 2 minute tutorial, she has changed my life. I owe her.
Its reversible, so if I want the guitar playing Buddha bag less flashy this way works. I didn't really make it to be reversible, I made it to the inside wouldn't have exposed seams.


  1. Cute bag! I wish I had your home economic skills... You should see me trying to sew on a button. lol

  2. HEy I got a tutorial too but can't figure it out still...I should have asked for the 6 minute tutorial!
    Great looking bags! Awesome guitars!

  3. Funny, I was looking at your bag thinking I should learn how to make it cute like you do and then I learned that I taught the style to you.... hmmm
