fabric find

Came across some fantastic fabric today
at the most unlikely place
it was at a really unusual bric-a-brac shop
and they had a basket full of really
nice fabrics all measured and wrapped in plastic...
all be back to say the least...
and all these buttons only cost $2-00
love a bargain...
***
but of course on arriving home
I was slightly possessed
and sat at the machine turning
half of this fabric into a bag...
I even put a pocket in it...
I know I'm out doing myself now...

I picked up a few "cane" handles last time
I was at spotlight...
well they did have 20% off
another bargain...
now what to do with the rest???

The fabric is wonderful and your bag turned great. You will be so glad you added the pocket. What's a bag without a pocket...

That material is fantastic. Love a bargain. I own that second fabric in a top my friend made for me. I think she paid a pretty penny for it though. So well done bargain extraordinaire.
