After the joy of learning how to make the automatic buttonholer work, inspiration struck. I'll make a satchel from this flimsey. Do I have the right colored zipper? Yes! Cool!
I pulled lining fabric from the stash and had to smile. This piece is from 1992. I know because back then manufacturer's used to put the date on the selvage.
The first one was so fun and so adorable, I made another. Don't cha just love it when your work comes together like that? Now I don't have to finish that UFO of a doll quilt. These are going in the Country Store Boutique at the quilt show Saturday. But I sold the larger one to a co-worker the very next day. Woo-hoo!
