But my friend Brittany (the great motivator :),) came over the other day with a bag she was cutting out for a gift. As I helped cut out the bag, I said, "I really should make one of these..." and of course, Britt wouldn't let it stop there. So we headed down to the fabric stock pile and started matching things up.
To make a long story a little bit shorter, a week later, and with much guidance from Britt, this is the end result.
So there ARE perks to hoarding fabric. (I'm hoping my husband will read this somehow.) It inspires creativity, no? Brittany teased me for keeping all the little tiny scraps. But hey, you never know, right?
I need to mention that the bag pattern is by Amy Hamberlin of Katie Cupcake, and the instructions for the quilt I found on pinterest HERE.
