I am of an age when it was pretty normal for most young girls to learn to sew, at least some. I used to make a lot of clothes for myself, but not any more. Cutting out patterns is just too tedious and it hurts my back to bend over for so long. The thing I never learned from my mother was her ability to cut out the pieces of a dress or top or pants without a pattern. It makes sense that she could, since at some point in time there weren’t patterns and she was an older mom, but it impressed the heck out of me.
Anyway, I do still sew occasionally; I’ll be making some dresses for my granddaughter, I also do craft sewing and sewing for around the house. But one of the other things I keep saying I’m going to make (I even bought material and cut out the pieces) but haven’t yet, is a casual bag for the summer. Some sort of sling bag or hobo bag in nice summery colors, blues and greens like the ocean or oranges and yellows and pinks like the sun and flowers. Below are some of the shapes I like.

I love Pinterest! I spend too much time there, but I enjoy it so much!
