I remember originally pinning this Swoon Stella Weekender Bag pattern on my Pinterest aeons ago, far before I had even made my first bag so I didn’t even know if this was a possibility for me. It became something aspirational, often glancing at it when I explored my “Sew Me – Crafty Crafts” board. Fast forward to today, this aspiration has manifested into something quite remarkable, if I do say so myself.
And to top this all off, I brought the bag with me to pick up Helena from day care, where she had a rough day coming home with two new booboos. But as soon as she stepped in the car, she saw the bag and gave it a big hug say “now this makes me feel so much better!” Definitely worth the new finger piercing in my book!
