When I saw this fabric at Hobby Lobby I was looking for something else and didn’t purchase it, but I couldn’t get it out of my mind, it was so beautiful. A particular friend came to mind that fit this fabric perfectly, so I went back and bought it. I got a really lovely shade of orange fabric (matches the flowers on the patterned fabric) and I was set. I am very pleased with this particular bag. It gives me happy thoughts :). Because of the difference in the front and back I put pictures up of both the front and back of the bag, would seriously have a hard time deciding what side is my favorite :).
I am seriously considering opening an Etsy shop so that I can sell some of the bags I make. This sewing journey started out because I wanted some of these for myself, but I am finding much satisfaction in making them (had forgotten I enjoyed sewing) and perhaps this old and forgotten and relaxing craft will help me have a little extra money here and there for my vehicle, as well as the extra money to continue knitting and spinning and sewing :). If I do set up a shop I will post it on my main website page. You have to love the skills that our Heavenly Father helps us develop and how they add to and bring joy into our lives :).
