sewing overload

Late yesterday afternoon I happened upon this free pattern to make an adorable, and in my case, seemingly do-able, kids bag. The concept is to hang it on a doorknob and then fill it will all the cr*p your kids clutter your house with, and then send them upstairs with it full of said cr*p at the end of the day, to be put away in their own rooms. In a perfect world, this would happen. At my house, probably not. Which is why I made the first one to match the stuff in my evolving, window seat/hallway, remodel project. I might just hang a hook next to the window seat and put magazine in it. So there.
Seriously though, I did it! It may not be perfect but it is cute...and lined. I made a lined bag. I see so much potential in my future. In my very near future I can see 5 loads of laundry on my bed, waiting to be put away. Reality bites.
P.S. Thank you Orla Kiely for making affordable stuff at Target that I seem to be morphing into 100 other items. It makes me very happy.
