bike bag

I got a new bike!

And the photos are conveniently missing... so I'll have to take more tomorrow when I have daylight.

Anyway... To go with the new bike I needed a little bag to store my phone and the garage door opener. I could have found something, or fashioned my Mickey and Minnie fanny pack into a bike bag, but that would have been way too easy. So I made this:

It is far from perfect, and it was kinda hard to sew, but I like it. : )

It's just large enough to hold my phone and the garage door opener, and my keys if need be; but it's small enough to fit in the spot I wanted it to go and not be obnoxious.

I love the fabric I used as the lining and the ends. I bought it a long time ago because it was being discontinued and was on sale. And I thought it was cute.

I am still working on the quilt, but I think most of my other craft plans will have to wait until after the move. It's just so hard to pull everything out of the closet (where it is probably buried), use it all, clean everything up, and put it all away in the same day. But you've heard that complaint before...

I have a couple other projects already in the works, so you're be hearing about those soon!



  1. I'm totally envious of your skill, I probably would have sewn through my fingers a bunch of times.

  2. Thank you! And please don't do that, it sounds really painful!
