Anywhere Bag

Once in a while you see that perfect bag
you KNOW is just right for you
the minute you lay eyes on it.

I found that bag in the
by Melissa

And I kept hounding inquiring
Melissa as to when the pattern would
be ready.

I just had to have it.

Just like a pen needs ink,
or a needle needs thread.
I needed this pattern.

Close up of the Yo Yo & Bling Button
for a little pop of color

There's a very nice pocket on the inside too.
I wish I would have taken a picture of it.
The inside is very nicely lined
and the entire bag is making
me fall in love with it all over every time I look at it!
(Since I finished making it about 3 hours ago! LOL)
I cannot WAIT to make another one!

Sometimes people come into your life
and just make it better.
When I met Melissa through blogging
(we've never met face to face)
she became someone I truly admired.
Her creativity, generous heart
and informative blogging
have honestly enriched my life.
Once you read her blog
you'll know what I'm talking about.
(Side note...she's also having a giveaway of some BEAUTIFUL fabric!)
She's just a great person.

Her patterns at her
are very reasonably priced.
They are VERY easy to read too.

As I mentioned in my previous post, 
I am now rating patterns via the # of 
chocolates I've either eaten, or wanted 
to eat while making the item.

Anywhere Bag = 2 chocolates.
NOT because the pattern wasn't clear,
because it was AMAZINGLY clear.
My "instant gratification" mode was in full force
and I didn't clearly read the instructions.
Yep...that's a VERY important part of the 
whole process...CLEARLY READ THE

Do I recommend you go and buy this pattern?
You will not be disappointed.
Anything from  her shop will be 
a welcome addition to your craft pallet.
Until the next chocolate rating...
