This one is mine

While I'm waiting for this pizza to bake, I'll fill you in on my latest project.

I've made a few of these Lollipop Bags by Atkinson Designs as thank yous for friends and for swaps and that kind of thing, but as much as I like them I've never made one of my own.

They've been on my list for a few years.

 There's even a pile of fabrics here, some of them cut and ready to go, that I've been meaning to use for a few of these bags for myself.

I'm happy to tell you that in between multiple track meets, soccer games, and the laundry that follows I've gotten one done!

This bag expands at the bottom which is one of the reasons I like this pattern so much.

The swivel clip is fun too.

I love making quilts, but a quick bag project is a wonderful thing!

Also, next week is our Spring Break!  Who knows what kind of sewing trouble I'll get into!

We've got a few things planned. I'll keep you updated.

By the way, wasn't it just Christmas?  Now it's Spring Break?  What happened?

The bag for you is adorable! I love that flower fabric. Of course, I still love the one you made for me... and best of all, I think of you every time I see it!

The bag is adorable Michele. I still use the one you made for me every week when I go to my WW meeting. It is so pretty! I have it sitting out underneath a woven pot from Africa. They are the same colors and look amazing together. I think of you every time I use it! Hope you and the fam have a great spring break.

I always keep the first bag I make - the prototype - normally made with fabrics I'm not crazy about (cause if I screw up the pattern I won't care). Everyone else gets the cute tested bags. So glad you get to keep this one...very cute!
