1 Promotion and 1 Sophia bag

I finally finished another Sophia bag. This one is for Kelly. The brown piping and handles are from Moda. A really nice solid. The lining is Wee Play by Moda. This fabric is 4 different prints in one.
I used timtex again to give the bag a better shape. I'm still having trouble with the bag puckering when I attach the top zipper part to the main bag panels.


I got the zipper pull in Prague.


Jon's been promoted to E6 (that's Staff Sergeant to you!)!! This happened on Oct. 31st but we didn't get the pictures till now.

Congrats on the promotion I dont think I ever saw my dad get any of his that is really cool that you took the kids!! The bag is cute I had drawn up a design like that w/o the handles and then started thinking about how easily it would all go wonky and decided against it... hahaha.... yours looks great! I think I just need to start using patterns....

Congrats to Jo on his promotion! Emily's hair is getting so long. I have purse envy now, on top top of the zippered case envy I had last month over that little bag you made with that Black Apple print. Quit making such cute stuff - I want it all! I love that little zipper pull you found in Prague; it's perfect for that purse! How do you find these things?

BTW - I love that Heather Nova song that played on your homepage. I didn't know you liked her!

Thanks y'all (sp?)! I was SO excited to find the zipper pull-it really is perfect! Lizy: I want Ava to slow down too:( She's my last and I don't want her to grow up. Never! Stay tiny and sooo sweet and cuddly. I'm gonna make myself cry! Jessica: you can make bag patterns? I mean complicated patterns like this?? You rock! You never cease to amaze me! It's not fair, all that talent in one person. I should hate you...but you're nice too! I saw my dad get promoted I think.. or change of command. Not sure but if I could do it again I'd pay attention. I have picture of me pinning Jon 3 years ago and emily is also a tiny baby! SO cool that both girls have a photo of themselves with their daddy when he got promoted.

Great bag, I love it! I especially love the little key chain... It is a nice accent to the bag. Congratulations on the promotion.

I'm last! Sorry, been out of it.... I LOVE the way Ava is looking at Jon. Special times, Jess is right, they never got to see their dad promoted. I was only able to be with him ONCE!

LOVE LOVE LOVE the purse. Perfectly executed.
