“Autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”
William Cullen Bryant
It all began with this Forest Fancy mini-charm pack by Moda.
I couldn’t decide if this was going to be a table runner, place mats, or a bag.
The more I worked with the fabric, the more I loved it.
The Mesquite Bean Fabric shop also had the fabric by the yard, so I purchased some for the border and the lining. The burnt orange fabric was in one of my fabric bins.
It just had to be an autumn bag.
Double pockets on each side
I used 100% cotton batting and backed it with muslin.
It reinforced the outer bag and it could stand on it’s own.
I also backed the lining with a thin, stiff, fusible backing.
I like the way it shaped the lining.
A few years ago, I had purchased an acorn and squirrel dangles that came in a set.
I finally got to use them.
