A couple of weeks ago at our scrapbook retreat (East Meets West) in Monroe, one of the gals was sewing several very ADORABLE bags. She had several almost finished and we all wanted to buy them. However, she was making them as Christmas presents. She found the pattern on Pinterest. This week, after going through my stash of material, I decided to make myself one! This fabric is double sided and, of course, I chose the pinker side! I bought it when I went to Florence, Italy in 2006 for my son’s wedding. Laura was at work so Kevin & I were wandering around downtown Florence and happened upon a fabric store. Neither one of us spoke Italian and due to communication problems, I ended up with a very large quantity of fabric! I thought I had asked for 5 yards but think I ended up with way more than that! Oh well, I didn’t mind since I knew eventually I’d use it. My plan is eventually to make a quilt out of it. In the meantime, here’s my bag!
