    Piddlin

    I found this adorable "medical" fabric at Wal-Mart on sale. It was wider than usual and NOT cotton but I bought it anyway. Now what could I use it for????? Since I didn't want to clean or anything actually useful, thought I would use my favorite nurse as a guinea pig. I used the "Sweet Retreat's Little Sister" pattern by Whistlepig Creek Productions. Added a little checkbook cover in the pocket, even had a blank register so you could tell what it was for. Gave it to her yesterday, she loved it!!

    What a great bag! I think I am going to break down and buy a bag pattern--so far I've made 6 or 8 mostly "out of my head". Thanks for sharing.
    God Bless,

    Of course she loved it, it's wonderful! Yes, I hope you bought a lot of fabric, because her friends at work will want them too. I should also be cleaning. It's raining, so I can't "waste" any time in the garden today. 8)

    I like it - bet a lot of people will ask her where she got it.

    Thank you for mentioning what pattern you used.

    Love the colors you used for it.

    Wasn't expecting to see a bag, though, from the title!

    That is perfect for such a wonderful sized bag! I am sure your "g.p." will love it. Darn, I want to be someone's "g.p."!
