Glamour bags.

While I was in Idaho visiting family, my sister invited my mom and I over to her house to make glamour bags.  She had picked up a pattern a while back, and had been wanting to make some for her and her two daughters.  She was sweet and picked out and bought my fabric.  My mom had purchased hers a while back, so we were all set to make five bags.  Her daughters who are 10 and 8 were awesome little helpers.  We set up our sweat shop in her kitchen and living room.  After a couple days of working on them here and there, we were all done.  They're super cute, big, and the possibilities are endless given all the fabric choices out there!

My niece Sophie picked out these fun and groovy fabrics.

Her little sister picked these out with her mom's help.  Just perfect for a little girl.

And this is my sister's bag.  All super cute fabrics.

I am hoping to make a few of these to auction off for the next time I get around to raising money for a worthwhile cause.  For the most part they are pretty easy to put together.  Once you do it once and understand the directions!  Like I said, the options are endless and you can pick out fabrics (you need two different ones) to match anyone's taste.  You can also remove the bow if you want.  And they're spacious, so they are great mom bags!  And it's super fun to make these assembly line style, so call up your moms, sisters, and girlfriends and have a glamour bag party!
