A Birthday Present


I knew I wanted to make somebunny a bag.  I knew I wanted to pick out new fabric, not use some I had on my shelves.  I went to Hobby Lobby.  I knew I didn't need very much, so I could choose something really fun.  I must have looked for 1/2 hour......going back and forth, well this, no----this.  Well, this.  Nahhh.
So I chose this blue and magenta flowery print.  I have found that MOST of my time goes into choosing fabric......not in the actual sewing. Then I have to choose ric-rac.....then buttons.  It's a wonder anybunny ever gets a present from me.  I love to put colors together, I love to sew.....so it's worth every minute I spend.  Do you have trouble choosing colors? fabric? buttons? paint? nail polish?

No. No. No. Yes. No.

What a beautiful bag. The colors kind of remind me of the colors in the apron you gave me - which I absolutely LOVE, by the way.

Possibly being drawn to that color hasn't made choosing any easier for me!

I always KNEW we were kindred spirits. I am just like that. I spend a looong time choosing fabric and putting the right colors together. It is soo much fun. I think planning the fabric is almost the best part...but I do love to sew and see the finished product and know that somebody's gonna love it. I LOVE the bag... it is so cute! Yes to all! Have a great day!

I guess I'm a kid in a candy store when I look at fabric.

I don't have troubles with those things. Don't spend a whole lot of time sewing. I was never taught growing up. I can sew a basic skirt with elastic waist and regular coulottes. But that's the extent of it. I still like to browse the fabric departments though. LOL
