Taking the Easy Way Out

I decided that this fabric that I had originally bought to make a dress didn't want to be a garment.  Made it a whole lot easier to cut the stuff straight (and it didn't matter so much if I messed up).

This is the Tokyo Tie Bag from Sew Everything Workshop by Diana Rupp.  I just got this book and absolutely love it!  It's a great beginner sewing book with clear directions and some really cute patterns!  Like this:

So cute!  I've also cast on for Catriona  but I couldn't get a good picture, so you'll just have to wait until later to see the fun cables!

**Ooh, I had chosen the name for this post about five minutes before the Beatles' "Day Tripper" came up on my MP3 player.  Freaky!

That bag is adorable. What a great use for the fabric. Nice recovery :-)

oooo! I have the same fabric, but in mustard/gold & purple, which I think I'm going to use for some pillows.
