These fabulous items will be going in my shop within minutes of this post. And I really do think they're fabulous. I'm really loving the first two. Remember that girls' night out I did a few weeks ago at a local winery? Well, there were these two girls who walked up, one held up a bag to the other and said she thought she'd like it. The other girl said something like, "Uh, no! Way too crazy and loud for me." So, I got to thinking, some customers may like my fabric choices but feel like the bag is a little too "hey, look at me!" for them. I've been trying to find a way to incorporate smaller portions of some of the more crazy and bold fabrics for those of you who are more...boring.
Anyway, I wanted something with some texture, to keep the bag interesting. But since I shop online mostly, I was having trouble finding something that I knew would work until I ran across this natural colored linen this morning. Very happy with the end result and even more happy with how great my new machine is with doing appliques.
