Felt Shopping Bag

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Simplicity 2445 Link to website or photo www.simplicity.com/p-4464-craft.aspx What are you most proud of? How cute it came out. The pattern has a recycle symbol on the front of the bag. I did that one for the very first bag I made for my youngest but decided to change things up for my other daughter's bag and for this one. There is a pattern piece for a flower in the pattern and that is what I used for the front of the bag. Then I just cut really small circles for the center of the flower. The handles of the bag look really cute with ribbon sewn on the front of them, too. I did that on my last bag. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It is very easy, but cutting pattern pieces was a pain. The carrot is from the same pattern. The pie is available on Martha Stewart's website. The cookies are something I came up with.
