    I made this today using a plastic grocery bag as a pattern!
    Here is the site that inspired me, thou I didn't copy her exactly.
    I thought this fabric such a hoot...and I am going to use it to carry my Weight Watchers books into the meetings...think they will get a kick?

    Too funny!
    They'd be a hit in the meetings I go to .... get ready as I'm sure you'll have others wanting you to make them a bag too!

    Proud to have a butt!!! This fabric is so funny because, lurking in every woman's mind is a mental pic of her butt that looks like these generous ones! Mine comes very close!

    When I brought this fabric home my DH says "that's what happens when you eat too much of that free fruit on WW". I made bags for my WW leader and the receptionists last Christmas.
