A temple bag? What's a temple bag?
Okay, here's a story . . .
I'm LDS. A Mormon. And we have temples. Lots of them.
This is my husband and I, the day we were sealed in the Portland Oregon temple.
This is the Portland temple.
And probably the most famous temple, the one in Salt Lake City.
And my very favorite temple, the San Diego temple. It has the most amazing spiral staircase inside!
Temples aren't just extra special pretty churches for us though. We do important work there. Temples are all about families, and we wear special clothing in the temple. Symbolic, ceremonial clothing.
Which is why I need a temple bag! My old one, I'm ashamed to say, was an old diaper bag. Not nearly big enough for what I need, and it was about time. I mean, I make bags all the time!
So here she is, my beautiful new temple bag! (Please excuse the less than wonderful pictures - I'm stuck using my phone right now!)
I kind of love it a lot. Who's surprised?
Checking this one off the 1QFAL list - first one done of the quarter!
Edited to add: the pattern is Amy Butler's Sophia Carry-All, but I took it to the FedEx store and enlarged it to 129%. It's a pretty tough pattern to find, but best of luck!
