New Tote Bag and Missing Fabric

Here is the "Sara Satchel" that I made for myself. I finished it today . I plan to use it to replace my purse and briefcase to take to work. I will be able to fit everything in it and the total will be lighter than both purse and briefcase. I will use the little clutch if I go out to lunch and can just put my money, lipstick, etc. in it. The one I made for my DIL is in my 3/26/08 post.

Here is a Moda fabric that I am looking for. My other DIL picked it out as the perfect example of the colors she likes and she would like me to use it for the border of the quilt I am planning for them. The sample we originally got was a fat quarter and when she went back to the store to get more, of course, they didn't have any. If anyone happens to see this at a quilt shop, please let me know so I can call the store and have them send me some. It is Moda's Aunt Luci's Cottage, Blackbird Designs. I will also post it on missingfabrics.com.
Hopefully, I will be able to get some - at least 2 yards, hopefully 4 yards.

Very nice! I did the same thing -- I went from purse and briefcase to backpack and I love it. So much lighter than two items and easier to carry around!

Will look at the shops I get to go to, surely someone will have it in stock. I probrbly have some at home, but will be a long time before I go home..LOL..Am going to write the info down and carry it with me. Good luck! Hope your DH is feeling better, I too have major bp problems, but mine seems to be under controll at the time, hope it stays that way.
I like this bag as well as I did the other one, I know you will enjoy carrying it. Catch you later, J

I've got 3 yds of a Moda fabric so close to yours: it is Moda Gatherings- the blue could be a touch darker (depending how true your colors are in the photo). I'd be glad to donate it to the cause!

I've got 3 yds of a Moda fabric from the Gatherings group that is so similar you could easily interchange it for the one pictured. I'd be delighted to give it to you!

Hope you are safe from the storms that was through there Wednesday, it sure was nasty here, got 4" of rain, the wind is still blowing. I am not used to this weather, so will be glad to get out of it.The people have been very nice, so that has been good, hopefully it will be nicer in Ark. Sounds like you may be able to get your fabric afterall. Good Luck.. Catch you later, J
