So this weekend I made another folded flap bag with button closure with slightly different dimensions as the one I made previously, and in a different weight fabric so I eliminated the need for interfacing (yay). This one turned out really pretty I think, and it was made from FREE sample home-dec fabrics and with the leftover coral fabric I used in the first sample (which was from a recycled skirt)! I have [finally] decided that I will be making this bag-thing as my Fat Quarterly Community Retreat sample swap item. I abandoned test sample #6 in favour of making these bag-things using some special fabric and really cool buttons to do the real thing with. You'll have to wait to see those (and the contents that I will be putting in each one)!!

top down and it makes a lovely little fabric container.

Also, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the blog Miss Beau Jangles for my wonderful quilt book 'Surprisingly Simple Quilts' that I won. It arrived a week ago and I have have fallen in love with a few of the patterns so my 'to do one day' list has just grown again! I also wanted to send a belated THANK YOU to the Green Bag Lady for the grocery and produce bags that I won a few weeks back which have come all the way from the USA! Thank you to you both once again!

the first one! The green post-it note is hiding the recipients name!
