March FNSI results

A longtime friend of mine is moving to Atlanta.  So i figured she needed a bag to remember me by!

hence, another Margo Bag!!  oh ya...and a Happy St. Patty's day to ya! 


a few years ago my mom gave me this st pattys guy as a gag gift.  she knows we love having Irish in us....even if its just a tad.  Irish is Irish right?  I know he enjoyed being in the photos too.


I took the city ATLANTA and just did a funky stitch around it on her pocket to make it extra special.  The front panel of the bag also has cities that I know are special to her.  That's whats fun about this Sweetwater Fabric-hometown.  You are able to make it a bit personal. 

BUT, this specific color was really hard to match with other fabs.  its the light teal color.  The canvas even has a bit more of a faded look, so by trial and error i finally found a background fabric to put with it.  its from the Ruby line and has teeny tiny little gray polka dots. 


and of COURSE it is backed with corduroy!  come on now.....would i let you down not using cord on a bag?  pffftttt......

Remember to come back tomorrow to mine AND heidis blog for our winners.  we are each drawing one and have something special in mind for this months giveaway.  wait....isn't each month special?

HAPPY ST PATRICKS DAY!!!

That's a good idea using Corduroy. Love that Hometown fabric. I just posted my FNSI results too.

;-) Everyone is Irish today! To include my very own Winston O'Peabody with his neckerchief sitting upon my St. Patrick's day FNSI project.

Cute, cute bag.

You sure do a fabulous bag - and cord is the best fabric for lots of stuff.
Thanks for letting me sew with you.
