Happy New Year!
Our Christmas break has been wonderful :) Lots of cooking and eating, staying up super late, and lots of Netflix.
Needless to say I'm itching to get sewing again.
Thank goodness Miss Jemellia of JemJam is hosting a year long Bag Challenge!
Amy Butler's book Style Stitches has 12 chapters, one bag a month for 2011.
Join in the fun for one or two or twelve months :) I like to stay in my comfort zone so this will be a fun way to learn some new skills and challenge myself. I am also going to make myself use at much from my fabric stash as possible, I'm the first one to admit it's getting a little crazy in there :)
So here are my fabric selections for January's bag (the one on the cover):
The floral is a piece I picked up on clearance over 3 years ago (!) and haven't done a thing with. The black dot will be the coordinating print for the handles/button and the mustard is lining. I also picked up a still in the plastic bolt of fusible interfacing and used my 40% coupon at the local HobLob, the ladies hate it when I buy the whole bolt :)
I'll be back with a finished photo before the end of the month, hopefully!
