Compelled to Craft

Last week I ordered Cotton Friend from Chocolate Swirl. Three days later it was at the post office waiting for me (not in my mailbox because our mailbox got ran over and one month later the HOA has yet to replace it. I digress...). I opened it up in the car for a quick glance before dashing Little P to pre-school, but when I got home I sat down and took it all in.

This is the page that made me have to have this magazine.
This is the page that delighted me the most when I first looked over the magazine.

This is the picture that gave me that "must make now" feeling (does anyone else get this? I think it must be a psychological condition.), and so I did.
And here is the result of the "must make now" feeling.
And now you can find it in the shop, and if you're in love with the vintage green floral fabric, I have oodles and you can get yourself some here.

Thank you Cotton Friend, Chocolate Swirl and all of your yummy goodness! Must go - I feel that "must make now" feeling coming on...

I love the bag! I especially love the fabric choices. You're amazing (but I already knew this)! I often get that "I've just got to make this right now" feeling, but I rarely act on it. Way to go.

Very cool book! Yay Japanese craft books!

Love the cute tote. Wherever did you get the car fabric?

What a cute bag and what wonderful patterns you have listed at the J store. I'm starting to get that "I have to make something" feeling too. You must be contagious because I don't really like sewing! Help! Time to read a different blog or go knit something.
