I bagged it:

In April I visited Dot (Quilters Needs) to buy fabric for my spring flower quilt and whilst I was there I saw a bag Dot had made. I instantly fell in love with it. Now this surprised me as I am not a bag person. It was just before our area day and as you may remember, we asked visitors to bring a bag to exhibit. I asked Dot for the pattern thinking it was the ideal bag to make to exhibit. Unfortunately she could not find the pattern and I forgot all about it. I made my own funky bird bag for the area day and I won a lovey prize from Amanda Hall. On Sunday I visited Dot again to buy fabric for my second Spring flower quilt. (Which I have made and it is absolutely fab but you will have to wait a little longer before it will be revealed). What a lovely surprise I got when I arrived, Dot had the bag pattern for me. I couldn't wait to get stuck in and make it and here is my first attempt. It took me the best part of three days to make and its not even for me. I can't say who its for as she sometimes reads my blog and I don't wont to spoil the surprise. I loved every minute of making it and I fully intend to make one for myself. I have decided to do mine in reds and creams. (Info: Pattern by Angel Buttons and is called Garden Tote bag)
