Pandalicious Stella Weekender Bag

I remember originally pinning this Swoon Stella Weekender Bag pattern on my Pinterest aeons ago, far before I had even made my first bag so I didn’t even know if this was a possibility for me. It became something aspirational, often glancing at it when I explored my “Sew Me – Crafty Crafts” board. Fast forward to today, this aspiration has manifested into something quite remarkable, if I do say so myself. 

When I first saw Katarina Roccella‘s Pandalicious collection and saw that the Pandalings Pod Assured was the canvas print, I knew it was a match made in heaven.

Now bag making is kinda like putting IKEA furniture together, a lot of parts to put together and it’s really truly best to follow the instructions. So, I dove in feet first.

With all the pieces spread out all over my play room, I finally jumped into the deep end and successfully put them all together (and the needle only went through my finger once). ?

And to top this all off, I brought the bag with me to pick up Helena from day care, where she had a rough day coming home with two new booboos. But as soon as she stepped in the car, she saw the bag and gave it a big hug say “now this makes me feel so much better!” Definitely worth the new finger piercing in my book!

    How adorable is this? Now the real question–whose is this? Or will there be a timeshare involved? So glad to have found you–your weaving makes me weak at the knees 🙂
