we're matchy-matchy...and we like it.

24 August 2008

are these not the cutest things EVER???

do you have the new quilts & more magazine???

i picked up my copy on thurday night.
i could NOT, for the life of me, get this cute bag out of my head.
{see page 17.}
i HAD to make it.

so as i was cutting fabrics for my new bag i had a brillant idea:
make melanie a little fabric basket in the same fabrics.
hence the matchy-matchy of it all.

there you have it:
mommy & me bags were born.

and seriously...wasn't this fall issue awesome???
did yall's 'have to make that' list grow like mine did???
i think i counted like 5 additions.
next up: i'm thinking 'almost irish'
{page 62.}

kudos to monica for having 2 awesome bags in this issue.
and to pat for her super cute table runner.

p.s. when i snap a pic of melanie and her 'purse' i'll show yall. promise.

Pin It!

I have that magazine too and am thinking about which fabrics to use to make a bag. I like all those pockets for my "stuff".

I have eyed this bag several times. Is it small? The measurements don't seem to make it very large. Would it be easy to increase the size on??? Love your blog!
