Samantha Bag

My friend Annette (non-sewing Annette) asked me to make a new scripture bag for her daughter Samantha for Christmas.

She showed me a picture of one she liked, told me pink was her favorite color and then let me loose on the project.

I stewed and stewed over a design until early Friday morning (3 am to be exact).

I laid in bed with the design going around and around in my head.

At 6 am, I gave in and got up and got to work.

I used to make bags years ago, so this a modified version of one of those bags.

I have an order for one more, so I will take pictures and post a tutorial in a few days.

The exterior fabric is Happy Tones by Michael Miller.
Emily gave me a layer cake of the fabric :)  Happy Tones hits the stores in January.

The AWESOME flamingo interior fabric is from Emily's Going Coastal line.

Linking up with Amanda Jean over at Crazy Mom Quilts :)
