It took me way longer than normal, but I finished a bag in one day! Wahoo!! After looking through my stack of fabrics, of course I went with a bag. They're my go-to project of choice when I need a quick fix.
A few months when I was cleaning out my studio I came across some Martha Stewart kitchen towels that I had purchased with the intention of turning into bags. Do y'all remember those? I made a few bags with the cocktail kitchen towels (holy cow, that was 4 years ago!!), but I never got around to doing anything with these fruit ones.
I suppose I was in the mood to do something fun and a bit different, so a peach bag it was. I like it! Lily, my almost-10-yr-old fashionista wasn't so impressed, but what does she know? I think it's fun and perfect for summer. The warm weather months are the time of year to have fun with your bag, don't you think?
There are a few more kitchen towels from the fruit series in my stash, so I don't think I'm quite done with them just yet. I feel like I played it safe this time, next time more pizazz!
Bag making will have to go on hold for a bit because the kids and I have some crafting to tend to while they're out of school on Spring Break. If you haven't come across the blog tour for Jennifer Casa's new book, Teach Yourself Visually Crafting with Kids, I'm pulling up the rear. I'll have a post up on Thursday with our crafts and a review of the book. I can't wait to share!
