Okay, I think I have decided ....................

.........on my fabric for the Sew Spoiled Weekender Sew- a-long Tote - yay!!!!

I know that I am little late posting this, but, I have had some technical difficulties with my computer, but, dare I say it I think I have sorted it out - fingers crossed

Anyone who knows me will realise that this is no easy task for me, that being choosing fabric. So I kept looking and looking and deciding and changing my mind a million times and came across this piece of Michael Miller. It is called Daisy Ditty and I have had it in my stash for some time now and I just didn't know what to make with it. I hunted and hunted through mountains and mountains of fabric (trust me this is no exaggeration lol) and kept going back to this one piece of fabric.

I have decided to team it up with a lovely plain black fabric (can't remember where I bought it) the black and white dotty fabric is Classic Black by Sweetwater for Clothworks and the lime green swirls (I love this one too) is another Michael Miller called Iron Work.

So I think that this tote will be a touch on the zesty side but I think it will look good.

I was also considering doing a second tote to run alongside this sew-a-long but I keep changing my mind on what fabric to use. I had considered using some of my all time favourite fabric lines Wuthering Heights, but I'm not sure if it will suit this style of bag - so its 'hey ho, hey ho its off to do some more fabric mountain climbing' in my stash - oh the joys lol.

Have a look at some of the other fabric choices that people joining in in this sew-a-long are using here. I love this part of the sew-a-longs. I love the fact that we are all using the same pattern but everyone's personality and fabric choices make the bag look so different, and no two are the same! Also sometimes I see something and think 'Hey, that looks good I wouldn't have thought about putting those colours together!' who doesn't love a bit of inspiration -I know I do!
