Sewn Shopping Bag – Finished!

I had the luxury today of a cancelled class  and instead of studying as I should have, I sewed. 

And it felt so good! 

In fact, I’m thrilled – I finally had time to finish the sewn shopping bag that I’d started a few weeks ago.

Here’s a picture; the blue plaid is the one that I bought from Target on clearance.  The obnoxious one is my copy:

Regarding the fabric choices... 

…Mom and I dared each other to use up our stash of scraps.  We’ve got an outrageous sum of oddball fabrics, so we’re just putting things together in somewhat random order – it’s really quite fun – goodness knows I like things gaudy! 

Love to you all,
