What fun I had today. My friend and colleague, came over today to sew. We had a riot and the time flew by. About 5 to 6 years ago, she was given an enormous amount of decorator fabric ends from a student's relative. She used as much as she could for student projects, but couldn't make a dent before more came in. We talked about using some of it to make grocery bags. Well, fast forward to August 3rd, 2011, and we finally found the time. We used a Meijer bag as a model. I think they are beautiful!
They are both made out of the same toile, but have different straps and different colors of grosgrain ribbon for trim. She is going to be one stylish shopper.
I hope there will be many more days like today in my future.
