I have been having WAY too much fun with my sewing machine. For my first project, I decided to make a boho style sling bag. I love that it’s roomy enough for all of my things *and* a diaper or two for the little one. I don’t always need to carry around a diaper bag and a purse, so this was the perfect solution!
I found the complete tutorial here at The Destashification Project via Pinterest. Overall, I’d say this project was easy. I learned a couple of new techniques, like clipping corners, and the base of the bag was probably the most time consuming part. It turned out great for my first project.
Without further ado, my new boho bag!
Inside pockets – one for my phone, one for pens, and one for miscellaneous items like chapstick.

I love the fabric. I found it on sale at Hobby Lobby, and paid less than $5 for everything! Wootz!
My mom liked my purse so much, she asked me to make two for her! And as a surprise, she bought me enough fabric to make another one for myself! She’s pretty awesome. Looks like I’m going to be busy in my craft room :)
