This sounds terrific!  And what a great discount offer!  Are there specific designers you prefer over others?  Also, should our own fabric be designer?

Yes all fabrics should be designer. I'm partial to anything manufactured by Michael Miller, bonus points if it's designed by Laura Gunn.

Do you think I could maybe make three in class, instead of just 2?  I have 3 people I'd like to give gifts to - these bags would be perfect!

Absolutely, 3 is definitely an option. In fact, I don't even charge extra if you want to make 3 instead of 2!

Good question, Mare. I'm thinking mustard browns, yellows and greens. 

I think we should plan a mandatory after-class "weekend" trip, too.

All these duckies are inspiring me to try a yellow, white, and black scheme, heavy on the yellow.  Mare, would it be alright if we appliqued duckies on our finished bags?

The one in the picture is off the Amy Butler website, so I'm afraid you'll have to inquire with them.

 Grin Ok. Looks like I'm moving to Nebraska so I can take this class.  Wink

Forgot to mention: I'll be bringing bags and bags of cat hair from my rather large and fluffy cat that I've been saving to do a felting project! I should have enough to share.

I am sitting here, reading about Crafsterland in Nebraska, after a looooooooong day at work, while I drink my second glass of wine. You all really had me going until this post (two weekenders in an afternoon). I think you are capable of greatness Mare but, Amy Butler can't make two weekenders in an afternoon.
