Library Bag

Our library has gone green and is no longer providing plastic bags for the convenience of book-checkers. I have been meaning to make some cloth bags for various things anyway, so I've finally gotten around to it! It took me a few months to commit to a color scheme, and a few days to make it, but I finally have a bag for myself. Of course, now I see things I wish I'd done differently, so I think I'll make myself another or two. I think the boys all need Library Bags, also. I started with ideas from the fabric basket at Pink Penguin; the two outside fabrics are Recipe for Friendship by Mary Englebreit, and the green polka dot is also ME, from the Friends and Flowers line. And the button was Marie's. Now I can take my project to the pool in style!

Very cute! I love that yellow print -- I have it in black. I'm hoarding it.

Great bag, Karen! Is it your own design?
Cheers!
