I rummage through wools, felt, and dark fabrics while the central air does it's thing. I do mamange to slip in something a little brighter just to make the days go by easier. I have been sewing like a mad woman, thinking about doing a craft or trunk show this fall, and I will need to be prepared.

What did you use for stabilzer?  It looks so neat and crisp.  Would you consider a tute for this bag?  It has such a nice shape too.  Great work

Yes this is my own pattern, a very basic box of sorts. Which allws for easy variations. Stabilizer used is VERY stiff. Pellon brand stuff didn't do it for me. I purchase 50 yard rolls of embroidery stabilizer to keep the bags stiff (my preference).
