I had this fabric and wanted to make something with it, so I got a basic pattern for a bag, found some trim and cord in the house and ...voila! a new bag. It was pretty easy - aside from dealing with my spatial orientation issues (the right side of the fabric goes against the wrong side of the lining with the interfacing...argh!)
On another note, when I do new posts - I just love that hyperlink thingy. I think it's so much fun albeit somewhat work intense. I'd love to do a post that was mostly hyperlinks...beware!
