ooooh. red is my favorite color!

Actually red is not my favorite color. But it is my sister's---and she has been dropping some pretty broad hints since.....oh...'bout November when it was our other sister's birthday and then again at Christmas about getting a bag from me.
And yay!....she finally had her birthday and guess what she got?

Tada! A bag! And when picking out the fabric I did not intend to incorporate her favorite color but I loved, loved this flowery fabric and then had to walk through the fabric store for about 16 hours searching for that perfect complementary border/detachable flower fabric.

I then sneakily drove to her house. Deposited the wrapped parcel on her front doorstep. And sped away. When the phone rang later it was her calling to gush that she loooooooves that bag.

Happy birthday, sissie. Finally, huh?

She's not the only one who loves that bag! Please tell me about the flower...did you make it or buy it? And if you bought it, where? If you made it, how? Blessings, marlene

I love your pattern combination and the button too. Don't you just love it when someone you know gets one of your bags and you can keep enjoying your artistry. I do! Cherrie
