First, just to let everyone know, I will draw for the winner of my giveaway on Sunday, early am.
Now on to quilty things. I absolutely hate carrying a purse, or even a shoulder bag ,(I hate the way the bag makes my boob pooch out, lol), and have tried many ways to carry my stuff. So, I finally had to make my own. I used bits and pieces from patterns of other bags I have made, and came up with a nice hipster bag. ( I always think of hipster dufus from Seinfeld...)
I sewed together strips of leftovers from that neverending Bliss fat quarter bundle, layered them and quilted to make a rectangular piece of fabric. I sewed the zipper in, then rotated it down about 3 inches before sewing up the sides and rounded bottom. I made a strap, then sewed the bag to the strap using the area above the zipper. the ends of the strap are connected with 2 d-rings. It workd perfectly, and it hangs right on my hips, and holds my wallet, keys, ipod, and cell phone. I am a happy lady, and my hands are always free.
Oh Oh OH!!!! Look what was in my yard a little bit ago....a storm with hail came through and left this in my yard just for a few minutes.
You could see both ends, but I couldn't get them in the same picture. Very weird. No pot o' gold though.
I will see you all on Sunday for the giveaway announcement.
