    That bag is a stunner...I mean that in a very good, positive way! I'd love to have it, and I'm not an orange fan. You waited for the right project, and WOW! You really chose well. Your MIL would be delighted at the beauty of your work with her fabric. Just perfect!

    Fabric like this would not have been something I would have even taken a second look at. Looking at it in the design you made for it shows how wrong our judgement can be. It is absolutely beautiful! I bet your MIL's sister is green with envy.

    What an excellent way to bring a good person to memory on a regular basis. The fabric was perfect for this pattern.

    Love your story and the purse. I also have an "interesting" piece of fabric from my mother and this may be what I do with it. Thank you for the tutorial!!

    GREAT FABRIC! AND GREAT JOB. Love what you did with the fabric. It was a perfect match to the pattern.
    Your sister will wish she had this piece for sure.....maybe you have enough left to make her one....you will got lots of compliments on your purse and everyone will want to know where you found the fabric.

    Love it! The fabric is so alive. I am glad working on it reminded you of your DML. And that you have something to remember her by.

    I don't know how long she had it before I got it.. Anyone have any ideas about era it might be from..looks like late 60's or 70's to me but I really don't remember..didn't sew anything then except kid's costumes and curtains. I do still have a terrible sunflower sheet from the 70's I'm going to just for fun make a quilt out of someday. Thank all of you for your encouraging comments.

    Although your DML's sister got her stash, you got a true treasure. The bag is beautiful and the fabric wonderful. I'm sure you will think of her every time you use the bag.
