It's official. I truly have the best friends. Not only in blog land but here in person as well. I am a fortunate person to have so many creative minds swarming me everyday keeping me inspired on a daily basis.
Today I had lunch with two very special people. Joan, and Heather, it was wonderful that our schedules finally meshed together so that we could make a lunch date. After a great shopping trip at fabric depot we went for lunch at Red Robin and talked for hours. (I know it was awhile as I saw the waitresses face get more disgruntled every time she walked by) I had a great time with the two of them.
I was extra excited to finally see Heather for her birthday so that I could give her the gift I had made. After much thinking and finally coming back to the same idea, I sat down and just started cutting fabric. I started with the applique inspired by a piece of vintage Pyrex that I found recently. It just so happens that the print is called friendship, so I thought it would be perfect.
The applique became a pocket then it just started turning into a bag. I am not kidding when I say there were no rulers involved and not even a real plan, but I like those kinds of projects best. (if they turn out ok in the end) Here is a photo of the bag.
