Could this be a new favorite?

I know that a mother should never say that she has a favorite but this bag might make me break that rule. I loved the finished product. I have been showing this fabric to many clients, always hoping that someone would pick it and finally someone did. I used Michael Miller cotton Brown Carnival Blossom with Michael Miller Jet Brown on the outer bag and Michael Miller Breeze Vintage Dot for the lining. If a bag could have a personality I would say that it is playful and happy. I hope it's new owner feels the same way.

As with all my bags I added a magnetic closure, key fob and vinyl lining on the bottom.

Soft Stripes and Dots

Shown are a bib, onesie, tag blanket, and full size blanket. All made with soft flannel on both sides.

Look Who's Turning One

I got this idea from my good friend, Nicole. We also made one in blues for her little one.

More Brown and Green... I just can't get enough- Revised

I always tend to gravitate towards brown and green. This client gave me NO direction but simply said you pick everything. So it wasn't a huge surprise that these fabrics were the winners.

I received this comment about this bag and had to share:

"I ended up flying to MD last minute this past weekend & was able to give my granny her b-day gift myself this morning, & the bag you made was a ridiculous hit! Before I even gave it to her I saw a strange yellow bag with the old "Mason's Great Granny" cut out of her old (worn beyond recognition) bag & stapled to it because she loved it so much she wanted to continue using it as much she could. Little did I realize how perfect the timing was for the replacement bag! My grandma about DIED when she opened her present & saw the NEW bag - the colors were perfect, the plastic bottom was perfect - she adores the keychain holder & the snap - this is just PERFECT & she is in heaven. With everything going on with my gramps, this has proven to be a lovely, perfect, unexpectedly wicked distraction - and it's so damned perfect! Thank you so much!"

Where has the time gone?

I can't believe that my last post here was in January! Life has been busy... but give me a break.
My pledge is to be better at posting my projects.... shhhh... I'm secretly taking orders. Don't you dare spread that around. I've been enjoying a minute to breath.
