Nook Bag

Gabriela never leaves home without her Nook. 
I've been so nervous that it'll eventually plunge to its death on one of our outings.
Yesterday in church, I noticed that she was taking sermon notes on her Nook, so it gave me an idea.

I've made a couple of messenger bags recently using a tutorial that I found.
I promise that I listened to the sermon yesterday, but I was momentarily distracted as I figured out in my head how I'd use what I already know to make a smaller bag for the Nook.
I couldn't wait to get home and start on it!

I called Gabriela into the sewing room and asked her if she has any favorites among my fabrics. Apparently, she's had her eye on a particular combination ever since I made this.
I didn't tell her what I was planning to do, which made it even more fun.
While Gab watched football with her daddy, I worked happily on my idea.

This morning I quickly made a tissue pouch to match her bag. I mentioned recently that the tutorial for the tissue pouch is no longer available; but I should have mentioned that the author has made the pattern available for purchase. (I just figured it out on my own.)


  1. Wow! That looks great and so stylish!
    What a great kid to be taking notes during the sermon, too.

  2. What an adorable bag! I love the fabrics you chose! :)

  3. What a fun little bag, and much safer to carry it around with :)

  4. perfect!! very novel and so usable.

  5. That's awesome! And she has a great eye for color/patterns. It looks great!

  6. Oooh, that's a great idea and it's so cute!!
