I Made the Cover!....

Three posts in one day....I was going to save this for tomorrow, but I couldn't help myself...I'm on the cover!
Lurline rang this morning to tell me...she saw it on another blog before I did...so of course I had to go out and buy the book!

I sent them two bags, to show how different it can look made up in different fabrics.
One made up in rose fabrics and this one in Japanese fabrics...equally as lovely, this one goes beautifully with this Japanese jacket I made a couple of years ago..
As it says in the mag....You could make the bag in several colourways to match different outfits..

So easy to make...I'm sure you'd love it... enjoy...♥

  4. Congratulations Julia! A friend told me she'd seen my quilt project and I, like you, rushed out and bought a copy. We joked, "What do you have to do to get on the cover?" And you made it! Well done. Thanks for following my blog - I've just joined yours too. Ann ♥

  20. Oh Julia... SUPER CONGRATULATIONS!!! I'm thrilled for you and I have to say this is a really great bag. I'm not at all surprised they chose it and very clever of you to send it two different colorways. Gosh you're such a cool person to know. I think I've said that before so... well it must certainly bear repeating. Warmly and happily for you, *karendianne.
