My big boy is now 7. That's 7 years from when he was a baby, and 3 years from being double figures! He is growing up so fast.
We wrapped his presents the night before, and put them on his bedroom floor, so no photos of him opening them, but he did come running in proclaiming his approval of his shorts that I had made.

itch decided today that he wanted to be a dude. Now my interpretation of this word is one that he doesn't know, so I am assuming that he means "cool", "skater", a little bit "surfy".
We went out to the local big shopping centre and he became very picky with what he wanted to wear. The finishing touches were a hat that was worn sideways and a 1 handled bag backpack. We visited a few shops to try and get a taste of what he considered "dude' clothing was, complete with hand gestures!
Oh gosh- when did he grow up so fast?

So (sew) its September already. I know myself and a few others are in denial about how fast the year is going... can we please pretend that its an extension of August?
Well at the end of the day, I guess time goes on whether we are ready or not.
So ready or not but here comes September challenge, to make a bag.
Now the bag could be for yourself (like mine will be) or for someone else (which is the one I will pull out if I should not get mine done one time)
In the little link list on the left there is a few blogs that have free bag patterns. I have made the Buttercup bag here from Made By Rae, and also my lates "your turning 5 and your a girl" present is the Messenger bag here by mmmcrafts,. I have also made the Grand Revival Flea market bag, Melly and Me Sherbet bag, also own the lickerty lick bag from Made By Rae, if your up for a really big challenge you can try the Farbenmix ElPorto .
I myself am going to make myself a Messenger bag. The other ones that I have made are sized differently to those in the pattern from mmmcrafts, and I have modified this and that as well. Not sure if I will stick to instructions or not, only that I will add a zipper... yikes!
anyhoo as per usual signup below.
