(Disclamer...I wrote this post before I went to Paducah and am just having it posted today....sure don't want you to forget me while I am off having fun at the quilt show.)
On a whim I purchased a yard of these three fabrics on Saturday two weeks ago when I was in JoAnns. The lime green really caught my eye and found two blacks I liked with it. I am thinking of making another bag/purse with these.
I liked using the cording so much on the black and wine colored bag that I think I will use the lime as corded trim and maybe other spots of color on the outside then use it for the lining of the bag too. I have not settled on what kind of bag to make yet but am toying with the idea of having one with a flap like the messenger bag I made - you can see it in this September 18, 2008 post. I will be making it smaller than that bag though.
I have so many bags that I really like that I change more often now. I had changed bags and gone to town last week to get groceries and when I went to check out I didn't have my check book so ended up using my cash instead. The next day I was looking in the zippered pockets and found the checkbook. I had forgotten which pocket I put it in. I guess zippered pockets are OK if you remember what you put in them because sometimes it is out of sight out of mind for me!
