DIY Bag

I bought this black canvas bag for $3.99 with an ugly print on the front and made it mine. With a quilt block from a special "BEE" and some binding. I then just sewed it over the print and ta da, it it finished. Such an easy project that anyone can do it! It would have cost me more money to buy the canvas than the completed bag! I love the closures too! WIP

It gives me so much pleasure just going through my fabric containers looking for the next project! Big joy comes when going to quilt stores! The daffodils poking their hea…
