My New Rug Purse

Do y'all remember this?! Ha! I was pregnant with Penny! Well that purse has been my favorite purse of all time, but sadly after 5 years of faithful service it was falling apart! For months I have looked for a replacement but NOTHING has panned out and the ones that I did actually like were hundreds of dollars. I have 9 hungry kids, I can't drop hundreds on a purse. The other night I was sitting there dreaming of a colorful bohemian/gypsy purse that would work for a hippie mama like me when I spotted a rug in my living room! Woot! Woot! That's it!

So before my dentist appointment the next day I bribed my children (with homemade cake) to let me sew while they watched the babies.

I added a favorite scarf gifted from my sweet friend Heidi, and done!! So fast and after months of waiting!

I read a blog post not long ago that said "the bigger the bag, the smaller the waist", hahaha! Well I took it to heart! I need all the help I can get! The moral of the story is this: If you've been looking for the perfect gypsy bag, maybe you just need to look around on the floor in your house?! Or your mama's house...I once begged a tablecloth off of my mom and made a skirt from it. :) xo, Sam
