Fabric and Pattern Crushes

I love this Art Gallery Fabric by Bonnie Christine from her Hello, Bear line and keep reordering it because I keep using it.  I have made Sloan Bags from this.  I just took my Sloan Bag to Eastern Europe and kept waiting for women to tap me on the shoulder and say, "What a beautiful bag - where did you get it?"  And while that didn't happen, I know that's what many were thinking!  I also love this Arabesque pattern from Sara Lawson at Sew Sweetness (it's a free download - have you been wanting to try one of her patterns?  This is a perfect starter pattern). I made one of these Arabesque bags for my sister-in-law's birthday two years ago. and she has requested a new bag and chose this fabric.  (Yippee!)  As long as I was making one, I decided to make a second one.  Just because.  And a couple of little key fobs.  Because...  Why not?  At Terry's request I added an exterior pocket, a necessity.  See the side index for other Arabesque bags.
