Trying something new!!!

Now how yummy is this fabric? You might think that I am going to make an apron with it but you would be oh so wrong.. I plan on making me a cute fun hand bag.... I fell in love with the fabric with the shopping girls the moment I saw it and had to have me some. Then I went to walmart and fulfilled my polka dot obsession and need for complementary fabric to go with my shopping girl fabric. I can hardly wait to get started and make this fun hand bag. I love to create!!!
How stinkin cute are these owls? I am in a tote bag swap and my partner suggested this owl fabric as something she would like . I was so excited when I walked into our local quilt shop and found the last quarter flat. I wish it was more but I will make do . I had this great polka dot fabric and this great sturdy brown fabric and just new this combination would make the perfect bag. I will post pix when I am done.
Hopefully I will have time to make at least one of these projects tomorrow. Wish me luck!!
