Piano Bag...

Let's face it, whether we write it down or not, we all have a "bucket list" of sorts. Things we want to do before we die. Well, one of the things on my list is to learn to play the piano. I have taken on and off, and yes, I can read the notes - but that is as far as I have gone with it. Well, I am pleased to say, starting Thursday, I am starting up lessons again. Therefore, I need a new piano bag, right? So, this morning I made this cute little tote:
I found my inspiration HERE. And, here is what the inspiration bag looked like:
I know I copied it pretty much to the T. I did a few things different though. The original just had the ruffles on the front side of the bag, and I chose to take the ruffle all the way around the tote. 
I added the trim to the top of the ruffles to give them a more finished look. 
I also added my favorite fabric from Heather Bailey as a lining. Plus, a little pocket for pens/pencils. 
I loved the burlap rolled flower!

Hopefully having a cute bag will make me play the piano better! ;)
Have a great week!

  2. What a perfect piano bag. I am so excited for you! I love playing the piano and am so glad that my mom and dad pushed me through the times I did not want to play - those teen years. Now, I enjoy learning songs to sing with my grandbabies. Keep us posted on your progress. ~Kelly

  5. I'm really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
