a quandry solved

Remember how I ordered that one piece of fabric that was way more orange than the piece I'd picked out for the lining? Well, my solutions came last week. I love them both - can't decide which I'm going to use. I have an idea for an apron using the polka dots. I'm looking for an appropriate turquoise-y blue for the trim . . .


My friend Karen picked out these fabrics for the bag I am going to help her with. She was lamenting the bag wanderlust she'd been feeling lately so I offered to help her design her own. She is embarking on a new sewing hobby. I think once she realized how fun it is, she'll be hooked. I know I am. The more fabric I order, the more fabric I think I need to order! So many great things out there!


p.s. Dana, this post is for you. You said you wanted to see my fabric!

I love the orange - I bought fabric today... it is a sickness.
Hope you didn't mind my "borrowing" your fabric for my bag. I figured it wouldn't matter since we live so far apart. You have a much better eye than I do for what works together. Oh and I've been sewing forever, won the "clothing and textiles" award in high school. I usually just do halloween costumes since we had kids.
I do hope to see you the next time you are here!
