Then it hit me, why am I saving it, hiding it away so no one can see it. I need to make more stuff out of it if I love it. It makes me happy to see my favorite fabrics, why not be happy everyday seeing it in use?!
So I did it. I used it up. My lumberjack fabric that makes me smile. I made a new library bag with it and a new favorite of mine- these viking ships. Hooray for a new bag and smiles!
I even put a clip on the inside so I could safely hook my keys to the bag without losing them inside it.
Other things I've made with this lumberjack fabric: PJ pants for both Little Misters and a pillowcase just for me.
PS. if you're interested in making a bag and don't know how to start- here's an excellent video to walk you through a simple bag. A video by Dana at danamadeit.com
