I never even put that velveteen on the fabric shelf (it's In the Clearing by Anna Maria Horner). I knew it wouldn't stay here long as yardage. Instead, it sat right on my cutting table in the middle of my studio, calling to me each time I walked by it.
I cut into it the very first chance I got, very late one night this week, and made this simple bag. Fabric like this doesn't need a whole lot of fussiness, in my opinion. Keeping it big and letting it shine on its own is what I wanted to do with it. I used the Big Easy Sling bag from Sew What You Love. It is, indeed easy...and big. Which is perfect for all the toting-around of many things that this Mama seems to be carrying these days. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Yarn, sippy cups, journals, an extra diaper for when I don't want to cart around a whole diaper bag, and um, extra bandaids. Good golly there's a whole lot I carry around, and it's all tidily within the comfort of the softest fabric I've ever touched (and keep touching). Velveteen. Yum.
