When you are in a guild, and you have an idea for a Challenge, can you guess what happens?
You have the gift of putting that Challenge together. Starting at the meeting on Feb.5th. come and see more ideas.
I thought since Calif. is on a no plastic grocery bag law starting in July, this would be a great challenge.. here I am, in the studio.
What better way to start by sorting through some fabric that has not been used in some project. I did not want to start going through the UFO boxes, however, that could have accommodated this project also. Besides loving horses, what did I think I would make with this fabric.
I was silly enough to think it would be faster if I just made the bag,
instead of looking up a free pattern or running the 15 miles to town and Bear Paw. They have patterns available. I spent more time trying to figure out how to do the handles and work out the lining etc.
So you see the end result, now do you think I am going to put groceries in that, I even lined it! Maybe, my knitting. I love the bag.
This is a New Year, and here is my thought, Do you like that fabric? I have some left over.
I thought that if you like it and make a comment on this blog, I would send three ladies a piece of the fabric that has two horses on it, and a piece of the border fabric.. You would have to add the extras to make this bag, or what ever you would like to make. Be sure to send me a photo to post.
I have seen blogs that give away fabric, but this is my first. I will take the names in order, and then use the random number generator. Sorry, this is only for the continental U.S.A. Shipping costs are too much for over seas. I only have three packets, so not everyone gets a packet of fabric.
Let me know what you think and if you would like a little bundle of fabric for your stash/ bag project. I will post the winner on Valentines,, Feb. 14th..
Deadline is Feb. 13th.
Look forward to hearing from you..
