It's been a while since we've made soap. This is a double batch. 25 bars. We actually do two double batches so we each end up with this much.

Changed the contrast fabric and flipped the printed panel. I think I'm going to like using this one.

I fell in love with this pattern long ago. Sadly, the $13 price tag scared me off. One day recently, I stumbled upon this pattern WITH fabric at a thrift store for only $5! The cowgirl fabric was something I would have never considered, but I am so pleased with this bag. I am out of practice and my sewing skills are slow to recover. I did not use any piping as called for in the pattern. I am really in love with how it turned out! We plan on getting a lot of use out of this bag for travel this summer and it sure will be easy to identify with those cute western boots- nothing like anything we've ever had before.

Getting back into practice.

somehow the photo is worse than the sewing. Which was already rough. This was originally the Mabel Bag by Swoon Patterns. 
I pulled just the pieces from my unfinished bin and assembled them with no directions.
