Teacher Gifts

Almost too cute to give away. I'm so happy with how these turned out. Anyone who has seen my fruit bag ... this is what it's supposed to look like. The first time I used this pattern, I skipped using interfacing (because I'd never used it before and new things are scary) and accidentally made it vertical instead of horizontal. I still love my little misfit bag, but bag 2.0 kicks ass. I'll fish out the directions and eventually include a link to this pattern.

Update: Instructions here from Mama's Pocketbook

And I'm in luuuurve with this fabric. Saw it and had to get it. It reminds me of my jelly bracelet collection from 8th grade. And the pink reminds me of a sweatshirt I made (complete with iron-on decal) from a Camp Beverly Hills pattern the same year. Yeah ... I was cool.

(OMG, here it is!)

So, summer bag is the obvious choice, but this fabric seems to be calling out for something more special. Any ideas? Maybe I'll just make faux Jams and bring my 80's pre-teen flashback to a satisfying finish.
