Fabric & Bag

How cool are these beverage fabrics? It has been so cold here recently that there has been a lot of tea and coffee drinking going on! I recieved the tea bag fabric in the package from Donna @ Kindred Crafters this week and was reminded that I had the coffee fabric in the stash. Saturday I put together a fun project using these fabrics, but I can't show because it is for a gift. Today a friend came to visit, she has been wanting to make a bag for a while but was not brave enough to try on her own, after having a very close look at some of the ones that I have hanging around here, yes - that is literally, they do hang around my house, I gave her some fabric and supervised the sewing. She went home very happy with this little number hanging over her shoulder. It is the Saturday Morning Tote designed by the talented Gail Pan published in Australian Homespun No. 70. The best bit is that her birthday is coming up this week and she is so happy that she learnt to make a bag that she insists she does not need another present! How easy is that? I had lots of fun, we laughed plenty and I got to do what I like best, sharing good company and my skills. Have a fun week, and for those of you on term break... Enjoy! Happy Crafting
