Mashed Potatoes, Give Away, and Fabric Choice.



 

Maddie Goose fed herself for the first time yesterday after church. Mashed potatoes were a big hit!




I have five followers now, so I will be hosting a give away for this book mark and the end of next month. If we can add five more followers between now and then I will add a doll to the give away as well.




I finally picked out and photographed my fabric for the Amy Butler Birdie Sling bag I am making this weekend. It took me forever to pick out fabric. It wasn't until this project that I realized I tend to gravitate towards very juvenile fabric. Maybe it's becuase I sew mostly for little ones, or maybe I just like bright colors. But so much of what I was picking out looked like fabric more suited to a diaper bag, not a purse for personal use. At one point I picked out a great black, red, and white combo, but the more I looked at it the more I realized how not me it was. While I would love to be one of those amazing people who wears red lip stick in the middle of the afternoon and goes grocery shopping in heals, I'm just not. I am way more of a lip gloss, cute tennis shoes, fitted t-shirt kind of gal. And I think this fabric depicts that perfectly. What about you? Does your fabric style differ from your personal style? Does your mental image of yourself match the one in the mirror?
