A handmade Garment Bag.

So I finally started sewing again. It seems like forever, well I guess it kinda has been. It has taken me a lot longer to recover from my hysterectomy then I thought. And now apparently I am suffering from some post-hysterectomy blues. No it is not such a thing, at least that I know of but for some reason I am just in a funk. Thankfully it seems as though I am starting to come out of it. Thank goodness, because feel crappy emotionally is just no fun. But how fun is this garment bag? I made it as part of the Bloggers Design Ring for Fabric Quilt.Fabri-Quilt sent me 4 yards of this super cute fabric to do whatever I wanted to with.It was inspired by our recent trip to California. I noticed how many ugly garments bags there are.I did notice that Vera Bradley sells some cute garment bags, but they are really pricey. And you know me, if it is made out of fabric I’m going to attempt to make it instead of buying it!Now if I only had somewhere warm to go!In the next few days the tutorial for this garment bag will be posted over on the Fabric-Quilt blog, Inspired by Fabric. I will letcha know once it is up, plus Fabri-Quilt will be giving away one complete Fat Quarter Bundle from the same line that I used to make my garment bag. Trust me, it is a beautiful line. I was just looking at it again the other day and was wishing that I could chose some of the paisley prints to sew with. I guess you could say I’m kinda loving black and white lately!
