***Handmade Bags - By Me***

Its sure has been  long time since I've put up a post. I have here something special to show you all today. I know I've never mentioned anything of the sort but I LOVE sewing. I do it for a living and I enjoy every moment of it.
A couple of weeks ago I sat down and tried making a cute little going away bag. I succeeded and I loved the results so much that I made 3 more. They are easy to make and it takes me from 8:30am to about 3:00pm to make one and that also includes taking care of my kids at the same time. I had a friend of mine embroider the horse and horse shoes onto the bag with her Embroidery machine. Boy those machines are awesome, sure wish I could afford one. 
I found this wonderful Fabric Challenge over at My Crafting Channel. I've been looking for a fabric challenge for a long time now with no success and finally I found one. Boy was I happy. I can finally enter my bag into a challenge and that was super news.
Another wonderful challenge that I discovered was one of Diana's challenges over at DL.ART. Her challenge was to post a favorite project from the moth of June. Well this is definitely one of them. Thank Diana for the wonderful challenge
So anyways, enough with my chatter. Here s the bag...
