Sweet Dreams



Howdy, I"m Sue from Country Pleasures blog and my sweet friend Cathy invited me to this sweet site! Even though I'm no young thing, I am re-learning the art of sewing, just a beginner with a advance mind of too many wants and ideas to keep up with. I"m still working on my first apron, got all the way to the waist band only to find out I did that wrong so now I've got to figure out how to attach it so it looks like I did it right? Anyhoo, my next obsession is these adorable rag bags. I recently bought one, and thought for $20, I could make one, or at least try too? So, now I want one in fall and Christmas themed fabric and thanks to Cathy for helping my find a free pattern, I"m well on my way to another challenge, after I finish the apron that is! Looking forward to getting to know all of you and learning along the way!

I love that bag! I've made a couple of things out of the rag style and really like them. I may have to try making one of these cute little bags though!
