Lazy Girl Designs. They have a lined interior, a back pocket, a zip closure, and are 7" x 9". As the pattern says, "A great little purse to runaround with." I saw one made by guildster Sara Hochhauser in a terrific fly fishing fabric. At a fabric swap during the fall retreat of the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild I got this fabulous black and red Oriental fabric from guildster Debbie Bookman and decided to use it for the trial run for this pattern. Except for the strap being a bit too short, I do like this.

Erika and made a scarf of t-shirts. Today's project was a drawstring bag with directions provided by CMQGster Sarah S. This nifty bag is about 8" wide by 10" tall and has a boxed bottom. I love the generous spirit of quilters!

Properly inspired, I began to wade my way through a list. With Erika M's hot directions in hand and after raiding my t-shirts, I made a t-shirt scarf. This is long - 110" and colorful. Can't wait for it to get cold.
Jinny Beyer - 150 bits that are 2.25" x 3.75". I've made some wall hangings but am thinking jacket with this set.
I meant to free-motion some table covers for my living room - binding is even ready. And I have some fabric from Eileen and am ready to try making Sarah S's drawstring bags. Maybe I'll get to these this week...
Crap. Just realized the jazz shirt logo on the t-shirt scarf is upside down. So it goes...
