It all started with a button...

What can I say...this button spoke to me...I AM after all...a product of the peace-love generation...and all things do come back...and I think peace should always be popular...so as a tribute to the era...and peace of course...I created a bag...
This was a fun bag...and it's going in my Etsy shop...I do need to make something more for my pathetic shop...I don't have much in there right now, because I have been busy with other things...but now I am determined to get some new product in there...





Here a close up of that bubble gum pink fabric...it spoke to me...yeah...I've been told I'm a bit loony in that regard...what can I say...





Some of the wool applique...I do love my wool...and for those of you who are into eco-friendly products...I used recycled wool...in other words...I buy old clothing and re-use the wool...






Can't have too much peace...can we...I only wish it were this easy to get some peace...this is a look at the inside lining fabric...a pocket inside and a patch pocket on the back too...this is the size bag I use for everyday when I walk...it holds everything needed for a walk...I.D., camera...yes...you never know when there's a good photo op, cash...I have been known to stop at the store on my walk, and even your water bottle...with space left to spare...oh and don't forget the outside pocket to hold your phone....









I accidentally put these pictures up in reverse order...this is a close up of a new blanket I just delivered to Project Linus yesterday...












I actually delivered two blankets...these are baby blankets...I like to rotate the sizes and for boy or girl...I like this pattern...it's quick and easy...and filled with love! Here's hoping these blankets give a big hug to a wee one who needs it!












And last...but not least...here's a bag I made and is being given away over at Brooke's site. Brooke is a great gal who I met last year when I first starting blogging. She and her wonderful family have faced some challenges in the last couple years that would stop most people...but her faith has kept them all going and she has a delightful site that is fun too! She is a true blessing to me and reading her posts keep me from whining about my minor struggles in life...go on over and check her out and enter the give away...

Enjoy your day, my friends...may you have peace and love in your journey today!!

I love your peace sign bag. I remember drawing the peace sign all over my Pee Chee folders in grade school :-)
