Aren't These Great?

Earlier this year, I made a cute schlep bag I found on Sentimental Stitches and posted a picture on my blog. Leslie Peterson liked the pattern and has made these six gorgeous bags for all the girls at a family reunion which she and her family won't be able to attend this year. Wouldn't you be thrilled to be gifted with one of these beauties? The fabric she used is perfect and I just love the black handles and probably lining in most of them. Beautiful job, Leslie!  At Sit and Sew yesterday, she was telling about the time she and her daughter, Elle, were having getting the handles to appear in the right place at first; but, as you can see, they certainly figured it out successfully!  Lots of giggles yesterday but not much sewing!  A good time, however, was had by all who were there despite the fact that the ac only works "sort of"!
