momma's got a brand new bag

I have been trying to find the time to make a new purse for quite some time with no luck.  When it comes down to it making myself a new purse really doesn't take priority to other 500 million things on my daily to do list.

I know it'll get easier as the kids get older and I'm looking forward to that.

But last week I finally had to put myself first and I spent a few hours sewing up this baby.  Thanks to the hubs for keeping the monkeys kids out of my way.
I used the market bag pattern that I've used a few times now by {Sandi Henderson}.

super easy pattern to follow with great pictures

I modified the bag a bit by taking off the large outside pocket.  This fabric by {Anna Maria Horner} is just too beautiful to cover up with a pocket.  This is my 3rd time making a bag/purse with her fabric.  I LOVE it.  It's so my style. 

I added two pockets inside the bag.  1 large and 1 medium one for all my much needed junk.
I love my new bag. 
 I just hope it doesn't take another 6 months or more before I finally get around to making myself another one.
