    Day of the Dead bag, So cool!

    I just finished a bag that I bought the stuff for last spring. I found the fabric and pattern at the little quilt show in Vegas. I'm not really sure why it appealed to me, but it did. The pattern is called Letty's bag and is pretty big, 14x14x6 inches. And of course it could be made in any fabric. The vender had it made up in this fabric so I thought I would try it.
    The bag itself was easy to make. Getting those dang grommets to click in place was not fun. But I got them in.
    I'm not sure if I want to keep it for myself of give it as a gift.

    Well phooey, I was hoping I would find the add pictures part, but I am sure not seeing it. Must be doing something wrong, sorry.

    when you type in this Reply box, look above at the icons. The third from the right is the add picture icon. i found that it is the easiest way to add a pic.

    Keen to see your work....try this...go, reply to threads, then after all the text box, scroll down to "additional options" click on "manage attachments" and choose upload from your computer (if that's where your pics are). Hopefully this should work.

    Finally got it figured out. Thanks to the kind people in the "test your posting pictures here thread". I am still looking for the right button to go on the red flap of the front pocket. Name:  Purse 001.JPG
