Well I finally was able to make it to Bad Melisa's to get the gift certificate my mom gave me for my birthday in August! What a treat to have it waiting for me. After moving and seeing all the fabric I have, it is hard to "justify" getting more..."well I had to spend the gift certificate dear". I got lots of goodies and was inspired by Sarah no blog and Gretchen to sew some bags. I got a cute pattern that uses the clear quilters vinyl. Something new to try. Bad Melisa assured me with this pattern I would be safe not getting a teflon foot. I think I was in a "French General" mood...That Moda man!
