to get your creative juices flowing (or flowering?).
Here's my story...I had (there was a sale on, which obviously necessitates a retail stop) to make a visit to the local fabric store and after finding what I needed, I found something I wanted. The bright pink flowers on the soft green background was begging to come home with me. It was on sale (hear me rationalizing the purchase??? LOL). It just so happened it coordinated nicely with other bits in my stash and gave me the idea to make this: and thankfully it had only one hiccup in the pattern drafting (which was easily resolved. Whew.). I've yet to line this bag, so it's still a wip; but so far, so good.Now that my 'test' bag has been made to try out my idea, I can say with some certainty, I will be making more of these. I've already been playing with other fabric combinations (you should see the fabric mix and mess I've got going on all over my cutting table...) and thinking of details to add to the basic design.
Sometimes, I get it right when I come up with a project that goes together easily, offers me the chance to combine several different fabrics and results in something attractive and useful. That's my kind of project! I'm so glad I gave in to the temptation of that new piece of fabric.;o)
