My friend Dianne at work recently painted these fabulous wooden letters for my quilt studio. I am going to hang them on the wall after I get the studio painted.

Jeni's pattern was very detailed and easy to follow. It took me about two plus hours to make the bag, but I'm a slow sewer and I took my time. It came out great! I think that Dianne will like it, especially since her favorite colors are pink and purple. The size that I made is called the Artist Bag and it measures 16" high by 14.5" wide. It is fully lined and has a gusseted bottom. All the fabric came from my fabric stash.
I will definitely be making this bag again. It was fun and easy. You can use your fabric scraps or yardage. I can see a lot of different uses as well as a lot of different options to customize it. I would like to make some shoe bags of my own for my luggage when I travel, as well as a larger fabric laundry bag. These bags would be great for over-sized gifts, instead of wrapping paper. You could also have a lot of fun using different types of fabric, such as denim or quilted fabric or decorator fabric. You could also embellish them with your embroidery machine or pretty ribbon.
Best of all--a finished project in an evening! That's a record for me!
Pugs and kisses,
