More This ‘N That

Woohoo!  I feel like I actually got something done today.  I got a sample bag made, and it went pretty fast.  This is the Runaround Bag by Lazy Girl Designs, made, of course, in my hand dyed fabrics.  One fabric has paintstik designs on it.  I didn’t have a 12 inch zipper to match the fabrics, so making do with the yellow one I did have.  I think it looks just fine…it makes  a yellow stripe.

This is a cute pattern and makes up fast.  The finished bag measures 7 1/2″ x 9″. I have patterns for sale.

I am planning what shows I will be attending this fall and what I need to have done as far as samples.  This bag is one sample I wanted to make up.

On another note, I was juried into the annual Working Together exhibit to be on display at the Evansville museum from July 11 to August 28.  This is an Arts Council exhibit. I have shown this piece in another post on this blog.  It is …But Words Will Never Hurt Me (Sticks and Stones). I am happy it will be in this exhibit.

  1. Your piece “words will never hurt me’ is just lovely!

  2. Hi Kathy,

    What amazing talent you possess–keep those creative juices flowing. When you get a chance please leave me a message/link over on my site where I may find your other website, I believe it’s I Pay Taxes Too, but cannot seem to find it when I do a search-engine search. Thanks! Hopefully you and yours will enjoy a happy 4th of July!

  3. Hey thanks Al, and I hope you have a great 4th of July too, celebrating the greatness of our country!

  4. Congrats on the acceptance! Cool fabric…how did you accomplish leopard-like spots? Or , is that a trade secret? 🙂
