theme and variations (and a chance to win!)

The front of this bag is pieced entirely from scraps from other projects. I couldn't stand to toss them because they are some of my favorite prints. Added a little machine quilting using my favorite bamboo batting and silk thread, rat tail strap finished with vintage beads from a necklace I bought at a rummage sale when I was ten. Nancy supplied me with an endless quantity of invisible zippers (which I do not bother to install very invisibly) and the bag is complete!

Leave a comment on this post before January 15th and I will draw one name and send a kit with all the parts and pieces you will need to make your very own theme and variations bag!
