Ashley's Birthday Present

Well, I have finished my niece, Ashley's hobo bag. I just love it. I almost don't want to send it to her. It is so cute. It turned out so good. I hope she likes it as much as I loved making it for her.

I used Chocolate Lollipop for the exterior and brown with white pocka dots for the interior and the handles.

It has a zippered pocket inside. No closure because it is such a pain to open and close a snap. So I decided not to put one in.

What do you think??

Chocolate Lollipop from Free Spirit Fabrics

Harts Fabric in Santa Cruz has some great fabric. Since fabric can get really expensive, I try to purchase my fabric at some type of discount. Maybe a 40% coupon or a 30% off sale. But sometimes you find that fabric that you "MUST HAVE"... at whatever cost.

As you can see, it is another version of the Chocolate Lollipop collection from Free Spirit. I just love it. It is the blue/green version of the pink one that I ordered from Fabric Depot. I should be getting my order from Fabric Depot on Monday. Can't wait to see it.

I am going to use this one to make another Hobo Bag. I will post as soon as I finish it this weekend.

Fabric Order

Well, I just ordered some new fabric. I cannot wait to receive it.

I just love this one. This is my favorite.

I also ordered this one. I think it will be better in person. I am going to make some tote bags out of it. They will make some cool reusable grocery bags.
