Well I have survived the first week back to school and the early mornings and I am enjoying the extra time it is giving me to get some sewing done. Once Lexie starts full time I will be able to dedicate a day or two just to sewing...WOOT!

I actually think I prefer them like this. I use a stiff interfacing to give the bag body and shape and I am more than happy with the overall look of them.
