    I wanted to make a bag using the grommets and found this pattern called Duffle & Bow Grab it & Go by Common Thread Designs designed by Susan Pennoyer. It's supposed to be a dubble bag with a round hard bottom and also a backpack. I decided to make it as a regular flat bottom bag without the backpack straps.

    I am giving it away tomorrow to a close friend as a thank you gift. I was her secret sister and she has given me some nice things over the last year. She is also part of my mini group. We all go fabric shopping, quilt shows, retreats and sewing at my home. She has also been there for my own personal crisis when my father passed away last month. I think she'll like it, don't you.

    Now on to the Bow Tucks bag. I need to make 2 before Sisters, OR show in July.

    Ok, so went to my meeting today and she totally loved it. She was prancing around the room doing the happy dance with the bag on her shoulder and my other friends are so jealous. They all want one. One of my closest friends said she had just seen that fruit lady fabric the other day and she was going to rush back to the quilt shop and buy some. She had made a bag for her mother for tomorrow and changed her mind. She wants to make it today to give tomorrow. It took me all week to decipher the directions and make changes. She's a speed demon and I know she'll have it done -- even if she stays up all night! When you show someone what you've made and they like it so much they want it too, that's a good thing. I'm happy that I stuck with it and it didn't become another UFO with good intentions.
