"Great Blog! The heart fix is a terrific idea. Need to try something like that on a bag that I miscut the h*** for a turn lock. Love your version of Ellen's Esplanade."

....and the back of the Angler's Memory Cushion!

The finished cushion, but then I thought maybe I should make more of my idea of using the back to leave a message....It seems a little plain now.  The tape is nice…See More

I did use the link, that is where I got my pattern from, but I did not see on there anywhere about how much material to use. Thank you so much!

I can't get over those bags! I absolutely love your bags.

Thank you for the tip on posting the link to my blog.I love the bags shown in your photo section!!! Learning how to make bags is on my "things to learn" list. Right  now, I'm still leaning how to cut straight lines for quilts (I'm not joking about this). I hope to sew well enough to be able to create fabric coasters for tea sets for gifts and swaps.
