Sue at Suebee's World had sewn a Jelly Roll together but didn't like it much. She gave me a large piece of it and I had fun hunting some matching fabric in my stash. This past weekend, this mess slowly ...
... turned into this:
|horizontal bag from other side and vertical bag|
I so love my new bags. I did remove a few of the strips from the horizontal bag as it made it too deep. I used the strips for the handles of bag #2 on the right and the inside pocket. The outside pocket fabric comes from my stash. I think it works well.
The green lining fabric was bought when I did DS1 last quilt (named "Take 21") but I didn't liked it. I sure do like it in this project though. The handles are the leftover binding from a quilt named "Far Away". The bags look very beach-y and summer-y, you know, fun bags! Thanks again Sue!
I had a lovely visitor on Monday. The rain had finally stopped and I stepped outside to find Mr. Neighbour's cat strolling in my backyard. He is usually very shy and skittish, and I can't approach him much.
On Monday, he must have been happy to see me too because we played together for more than 30 minutes. I had so much fun. I so miss having a cat.
