The nice thing about being a celebrity is that if you bore people they think it's their fault.
Not that I know, but I can imagine.
This is my last bag post for now, I promise.
I call it my milk bag because I appliqued milk top fabric spots (from Super Buzzy) onto the stripes at the top.
I then stitched some glinting seed beads around the outside of each applique. It looked so lovely when it was done. And I found just the right weight of heavy muslin to interline it so it was really strong, with a cell phone pocket and silk piping. The only thing I wish I'd done differently was to pipe the edges of the handles instead of sewing them right sides together and then turning right way out. The heavy muslin interlining made this a pain, and I love piping. Next bag I'll do it that way.
I'm going to be teaching a bag making workshop at Graceland's in April. Many of you have asked for the pattern. It has been adapted form one in a Japanese craft book. I'll dig out the book and show you. But I will also post a bag pattern and tutorial sometime soon for something similar (give me a week or so to get it together).

Dislikes: We're puppy sitting this week. Lovely. But puppy poo, yuck!
