I tried the flower. But, I just didn't like it. Not on this bag. And not for who it is for. It just didn't say her name for me. BUT, the next one probably will have the flower. Because it speaks her more. Well, a little secret is this one was actually for a friend. The next one is for my son's teacher. It is out of some fabulous black fabric with a red stripe. It is totally her. I think she is going to love it. At least I hope.
I decided the bag needed a fun towel with it. I don't know why. It is not like a towel and a bag go together. But, that polka dot fabric just keeps speaking to me. Too bad it was only a fat quarter and the last one at that in the cute little quilt shop by my house. I searched for another. There wasn't any. But, doesn't it just speak happiness on this towel? I think so too. I think I need one too.
I spent my day yesterday making a fun 4th of July banner to go along with my Pictionary prize. (Yes, I am in a pictionary group. It is so fun. It is kind of like being in a bunko group, but you play pictionary. Yummy dinner, pictionary playing, and lots of laughing and talking. Yep. Happiness. I always come home a much happier person. Every. time.) Of course I forgot to take a picture of the banner. Go figure. That seems to be me these days. But, it was small and cute. I also made a bunch of these fun headbands. One of my friends had been saying she wanted to buy one from me. So, if I am going to make one or two I might as well make like 12. So, that is what I did. But, I didn't have enough headbands on hand, so soon we will be making a trip to the mall to get some. But, for now, happiness to fun headbands, a fabulous polka dot towel and gathered bag.
