Zombie Mama

A lot of you asked what I was going to do with my selvages. This is what!


I totally intended to enter this bag in the Bernina fall bag contest. The pattern is from PMQG's own super-kind super-talented superstar, Monica of Happy Zombie. Monica's advice was to shoot yummy shots of the bags with something in them. I dutifully did that.


I love this colorful little bag. I made a practice bag originally before diving in with the selvages. My daughter calls it her bag.



We glamour shot that one too. And then I forgot to enter the contest.


So that's about right, the best laid plans! Getting ready for Christmas, waiting impatiently for my husband to get back in town, hoping to sew with the quilt guild this Saturday... Thanks for all the sweet comments on my posts lately!

Oh My! It is GRAND! I love that style bag and well, the size of that one makes me giddy. I confess, though, at first I thought you had found selvages on steroids. The perspective of the sharpies brought me back to reality. Hope you get to sew on Saturday!

That is an adorable bag, Christina! What a great way to use selvages... and it doesn't take a ton of them, either!! Thanks for the inspiration......
