I love a happy sewing accident. When I was first printing Made by Rae's Showoff Bag pattern, I mistakenly had my printer set to multiple pages per sheet, printing the pages at about 50% size (doh!). Before I could get too upset, I noticed how ridiculously cute the tiny pattern pieces were ... and thus, the desire to make a tiny Showoff Bag was born.
Modern Meadow Herringbone in Pond (by Joel Dewberry). Love it.
A few changes I made to the pattern: piping between the top and bottom fabrics, a magnetic closure, and two jumbo-sized box pleated pockets, perfect for hauling diapers around. I was so excited to have a purse that wasn't a diaper bag, and what did I do? Pile it high with diapers and kid stuff. I wish I could pack as light as Ruby.
