Summer Lovin

Remember these?  Well I put one to a good use.  


When a normal person is about to go out of town they spend their time organizing and packing to get ready to leave.

When I'm about to go out of town I think things like, "I could really use a new bag for my trip right about now."  And so, I sew.


Beach or mountains, and even shopping, I'm ready for them all!

VERY summer-y! Great idea & I love the black/white fabric choice! Pink or soft French blue would have looked nice with it, too.
