DIY Faux Leather Bucket Bag

DIY Faux Leather Bucket BagI have been on the hunt for a small, but efficient, bucket bag for quite some time now. I wanted something that could hold all my necessities, but didn’t feel too bulky. Since I couldn’t find one out there, I decided to make my own. I used camel colored faux leather vinyl, and the chambray fabric I used for the Chambray Baby Bonnet with Leather Ties. This took me about an afternoon to make, and I have to admit, I already want to make a bunch more in different colors.

Fabric Friday

I took a psychology class in college and became pretty obsessed with all the personality tests we learned about, especially the Rorschach Inkblot Test. I’m also an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs, and you? I was inspired by this test to create a new spin on our Kid Art Trivets tutorial. I ended up making a bunch because I just loved how different they all turned out. Now I just want to have friends over so I can find out what they see.

Behind the Scenes with a Cruise Ship Crew

One of the highlights of cruising the high seas on a Carnival “Fun Ship” is getting to meet new people from all over the world.
