Little Red Riding Hood Bag

Hey guys! Can you believe that it's November?? I can't believe how fast time goes sometimes. October was a crazy month for me. I got super sick which lead to an unexpected surgery... Nothing serious, just had to have my tonsils out, but as a result I've been kinda scarce here on the blog for a little while. I'm almost all the way healed up and feeling soooo much better now. Thank goodness! 

I haven't really been sewing too much on my machine since we moved into our new house. I've mostly been getting things settled. I did do a really fun project a couple weeks ago, but its top secret for now. (Don't you hate when people do that?? Me too! Sorry! :) 
I have been working on my La Passacaglia quilt in my down time though. If you follow me on Instagram, you've probably seen my progress. (#mbdcbnpassacaglia) This project brings me so much joy. I love coming up with fabric combinations for the cogs and rosettes and then piecing them all together. So much fun!!  

I'm sooo ready to get back to my machine now that I am feeling better though! I can not wait!

Until then, I thought I would share yet another Oliver + S Messenger bag that I made a couple years ago but never shared. It has to be my very favorite! I made it for my daughter and it is very beloved. She uses it all the time...
You can find the pattern in the Oliver + S Little Things to Sew book

I made the smaller version, which is perfect as a little dolly diaper bag for her to play with, or to carry small books and odds and ends in. 

I used one of my favorite fabric panels by Tasha Noel for her Little Red fabric line. It worked perfect for this bag. I added some mini pom pom detail along the top of the bag and used some Bonnie + Camille for the bias tape and strap. I just love the way it came together. So sweet. 

I hope that y'all are having a wonderful day! Check back here soon for some fun Christmas projects that I have up my sleeve. 
Happy Sewing! 
xoxo, Ashley


  1. I'm glad you're on the mend. Your bag is so adorable! I love that fabric line too. I've been hoarding some for a few years now. I'm just waiting to have a granddaughter someday :0)
