Handbag for Peace

I'm going to start off with an apology. Nancy and Susan let me pick fabric to make a tote bag for a shop sample at Glad Creations.

I never started on it and now the pattern and the fabric I chose are in the discount section. Oops! Sorry.

To make up for my misdeeds, I volunteered to make the Claire Handbag.

I have to say that the pattern is really well written. Every step has an illustration and is easy to follow. This project took me about a day to complete.

I love the fabric that we picked for the bag. It is from the Flower Child line. It has a lot of fun bright prints. Glads has quite a few bolts from the line in different colorways.

Susan will be showing it at the second Wednesday demo, "Quick Christmas Presents" and at Scrap Tamers. If you come in and take a look at the sample and the pattern, I bet you will want to make this bag.

The bag looks great! I can hardly wait to see it in person.

I did see it in person and not only is it cute, it's perfectly executed. A professional job. (Isn't guilt a wonderful thing?)
