Tasty Bag

A couple weeks ago, I found instructions online to make a bag with a fat quarter, and when I found this cupcake fabric, I knew right away what I must do with it!  It combines two of my favorite things, pink and cupcakes, and it's just begging to be used and shown off.

I had started on it about a week ago (cutting, etc.), but didn't have time in the week to work on it. So yesterday, I sat down and finished it. It was really easy! I followed the instructions in most ways, and added to them in some ways. For instance, the bags in the instructions don't have pockets, but I added one, because really, you need pockets! Or at least I do.  This was also my first time installing a magnetic snap, and it was such a snap to install (no pun intended). Had I known how easy it is, I would have used it for this bag--although, I struggled with that bag anyway, so who knows.

Anyway, here is my latest creation and the bag I am carrying as of now. I LOVE it and how it turned out.  The photos just don't do the color justice. At least for the inside, which is a vibrant, almost tie-dyeish look. When I was done with the bag, I felt it needed something. So I went to Joann and found this. Voila! Perfect for the bag! :)

What do you think?
