    I have none. 8-) I saw the fab a few years ago and fell in love with it but didn't really know what to do with it. Well, it's now in KQ catalog and I would love to buy some, but the dilemma remains...

    I've made several purses/bags with it. I'll try to take pictures tomorrow and post.
    A favorite in Weight Watchers since fruit is now "free". DH says that is what happens if we eat too much fruit.

    I made 2 purses out of them. Don't have pictures but what an attention grabber. Ended up selling them for a discount cuz even tho everyone loved them, it takes a very special woman to use it as a purse.

    I didn't see it in my KQ magazine. I'm gonna have to search again. I want to make my mom a purse for when she goes to FL in the winter. She would love it.

    I bought some a couple of years ago intending to make an apron. It's still on my to-do list!

    I have the fabric and planned on making a Bow Tucks bag with it but if I see bags I lke better may change my mind.
    I am sure it will be a bag of some sort though! Love the fabric.

    I love that group! For starters, I made some "girlfriend" towels using the border fabric. We are all over 50 and we picked our shape! I just put the border on some colorful hand towels. I use mine in the car to catch spills.

    Isn't it tempting to just flick that little cherry right off the line up?

    This fabric is so much fun. Here are two bags I made for a customer. The larger one has a zipper top. The smaller one is my own design.

    I really like both of your bags. I would like to make one like the second one. Do you have a pattern for it?

    Thanks,

    pattern is from my head. I'll try to write up something with basic instructions. May take a while.

    I'm keeping an eye on this post - I bought some of this fabric a while back and been trying to think of what I could make.

    All the creations are awesome! I just love this fabric. I could be a body double for Pineapple Lady!

    Thanks for starting this post.
