Greetings friends! How was your weekend? I guess that's a lame question coming on Tuesday but that's what happens when you totally skip Monday blogging. We had a busy time, mini birthday celebration with Frankie, normal errands, some holiday related errands, lollygagging around. It all takes time people. Especially the lollygagging.
Also late.. but today I'm showing off the bags my friend Melissa sent me! If you follow Melissa, you've seen these bags over on her blog, 100 Billion Stars. I love this top bag, it's her pattern Easy on the Curves and you can pick up the pattern here. Perfect for taking on a quick trip the market, its soft enough to fold up but sturdy enough to withstand a nice supply of groceries.
I am in love with this next bag..it's made with Bosal Foam so it's nice and stiff, but still feels good. I'm looking forward to when Melissa posts about her experience sewing with the foam. This bag is now my go-to bag to use for my tablet and a couple of magazine when headed out for a trip. Everything slides right in it and it keeps its shape. It has a magnetic closure and a couple of big pockets, it's perfect. I sure appreciate that I sent her fabric and she sent it back in the form of bags!
Melissa has a great free patchwork bag pattern you can download here. I love Melissa's style, she love bright saturated colors and her projects are bold and exciting. You should follow along with her on her blog, she's always working on something and her photos are fantastic.
Are you working on anything fun? I finished this cute potholder the other day. Sometimes I post pictures on Instagram from my phone that are sneak peeks so if you're not an Instagram user you can get a look at them here.
Have a great week everyone! Happy Thanksgiving! xo
