Project Gone Wrong!

Have you ever had an idea in your head and translating to reality sometimes is difficult? Well, that is what happened to me tonight. I had the idea of a super cute ruffled heart on a baby onsie. It started out ok...
I picked out the fabrics I wanted to use.  
I cut the fabric into three quarter inch stripes. 
Yes, I know, I should have stopped here. This looks like a hot mess! 
Actually, I thought that after trimming the edges and placing the heart to the onsie that the project could be salvaged. 
NO WAY! Embroidery gone bad! YUCK YUCK YUCK! I had such high hopes for this idea that was in my head....I think I am going to go to bed.

I was so frustrated that my idea didn't work out, that I knew what I had to do. I needed to sew a bag! Because of the frustration level...I was not planning on blogging the bag I made tonight, so I didn't take any picture of making the bag. But, after I was done with the bag, I wished I would have taken pictures to show you, because I LOVE IT!  
If you are a red/black and white fan, you will love this bag!  
I added some felt flowers to the front of the bag for some whimsy. 
I love the contrast of the fabrics! 
There are four big pockets! 
I think this would make a great bag for church, work or even a knitting bag. 
The bag measures approximate 12.5 inches wide, 10 inches tall and three inches deep. Perfect size for a few books, crafts or binders. 
The back of the bag is cute too!

Ok, now I can go to bed calm!

  15. Oh the bag is adorable. To save your heart you can take it off the shirt and add it under the onsie and cut it out,like 3D, did that make sense? Hopefully good luck!
