What was your inspiration?
I am a big reader. In fact, I read everyday. I love to read myself to sleep, I can't bear to sit in the car waiting for kids to finish various activities without a book and my reading subject matter is very varied. As such, my wallet can't keep up with my reading demands!! And so, I am constantly at my local library, borrowing, borrowing, borrowing. I borrow for pleasure, for sewing education and for kids bedtime storytime. Our local library can access a much larger statewide library pool so the selection is fantastic. Usually, if I see a book on someone's blog that I think I must have, I borrow it from the library first and if it is life and death that I have it - I buy it. More book bang for my buck!!!
But I didn't have a lovely bag to in which to carry my armful of books and I decided the old shopping bags had to go.
So I designed and sewed myself a new one!
