Witch Bag

I really grin every time I see this bag. It takes just the right person to bestow this gift upon... Can you even guess who I made it for?? (Listen to the drum roll.) It was especially made for none other than... my lovely mother-in-law. Go on, laugh. That is soooo stinkin' funny! I did ask her ahead of time to make sure she would think it was as funny as I did & she gave me the green light. I actually adore my mother-in-law and think she's quite extraordinary. She has an incredible sense of humor and I love spending time with her. Shall I plot an evil bag for Thanksgiving or Christmas??? Oh, my mind is spinning. Never forget to have fun in life. And mommies, cross your legs--you might wet your pants! :)

Annee's Bag

Sweet little girls deserve sweet little bags! This was truly a one day project I had to cram and finish. Not sure if procrastination is bad (no house cleaning that day) or good (lets inspiration bubble out and just have fun!). The only criteria was that it had to be pink and yellow. I dug and dug from my little stash and came up with just enough matching fabric. Yes, that's a cloth napkin with the fringe still attached. Dying to make more like this, but duty calls today. I'll have to lose sleep all weekend thinking up the next fabulous color scheme, trick my husband on Monday to make it look like I was the perfect housewife and cleaned all day, and then find my next victim for a little patchwork bag! Giggle, giggle, giggle... Life is grand!
