We moved recently, and so that means  lots of UFO's (un finished objects) have come to the surface.  On a voyage into the pile of fabric that will be the guest room one day, I found the following project.  I had cut it out from some cotton waffle weave and a cool piece of IKEA canvas I bought a few years ago.



That is a north American sized paper towel (I dunno...are they different sizes in different counties?) roll in the first pic...


The stork is a pocket.  I added the salvage in respect of the designer.  I got it at IKEA and I feel in love with the idea of the squirrel trying to break into the bird cage to get at the bird inside with a cheese knife.  Then I saw the rabbit and the turtle and I had to have it.  I got it on the end of season sale, so it was probably 2008 when I got it.  It is a nice weight canvas.  The straps are long enough that I can put them over my head and wear cross shoulder.  I could also carry a small child in it if needed Grin....and 4 of Cosmo  Grin  Grin

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to kno

Oversea- IKEA seems to have much more fun stuff than we do, actually. Great fabric, suereal! The stuff they sell over here is always sadly tasteful and minimalistically colorless Wink
I really like that you kept the designer's tag on it Grin

Just have someone come in and take all the things out of your rooms and pile them in the hall way...it will be JUST like your moving Grin

And thanks for all the nice words Grin
