    I have so much fun making these bags this spring and summer. My daughter wanted a black and purple bag for her birthday and I couldn't find a fabric that didn't look like Halloween. I bought the deepest purple I could find and designed my own fabric with black and flowers. It was fun, I hope she likes it!!

    Thanks for looking....

    The pattern is Called...On Tour Bag.....By Poor House Designs. I bought it at a quilt shop, I just wanted to try something different than a bow tucks. These seem to hold so much and I love the shape!!

    Just love your bags! They look professionally made.
    I just purchased a bag pattern that calls for the drapery grommets. Could you tell me where you got the turquoise grommets and what size they are? They would match the material for my bag perfectly, but can't find them anywhere. Thanks

    I bought them at Joann's and I threw away the packaging. But when I measure them they are 2 1/4 inch across, not the inside circle the outside. They come in a package enough for 2 bags. I have enough for another bag and will not use them. If you send me a pm with your address I would be happy to send them to you. I don't think I will ever use them. Just let me know and I will put them in the mail.

    Just checked my pattern...It calls for grommets that are 1 9/16 inch in diameter. Again mine are 2 1/4 inch across...They don't seem bigger and fit my bag nicely, I think you can use what you want.

    Laura, Thank you so much for your kind offer. Unfortunately my bag calls for 8 grommets. :cry: But knowing that you got them from Joanns helps. My Joann's doesn't have that color, but perhaps I can get them online. Once again, I really love your bags. You do great work.
