I really mean for this to be a turbo post. We're literally walking out the door to head six hours north for Caelyn's open-water dives to get scuba certified. Still, I don't want to miss linking up with Amy and Friends.
I made this messenger bag from a Noodlehead tutorial a couple of days ago, and it was FUN, FUN! I used an old pair of Eddie Bauer capris and a pair of my son's outgrown cargo shorts, as well as what was left of some Amy Butler fabric. Here's how I plan to use the final product:
Also, I made this case for Gabriela to carry her drawing supplies, with which she is nearly inseparable. I detest the binding step of any quilt project, which is partly why I had a temper tantrum and stopped quilting in the spring of 2002. For that reason, I've omitted photos with close-ups of the sloppy details. Still, our jovial little girl is plum tickled with her new case. She kept showering me with compliments as I was making it, not realizing that it was intended for her. At one point she said, "I don't know what that thing is supposed to be, but it is SO cute!" I love her.
