More Treasure

Yesterday I had nothing to do at lunchtime so ventured into an interior design store near work. I'd seen a rack of $5 sample fabric swatches through the window... do I need it... ??*** So $5 later ..... haha.. couldn't help myself... I had all these fabulous bits and pieces.. of course I've pulled them all apart and washed the sticky paper off the back... There's heaps here to make some scrappy bags and look I can use more of the gorgeous buttonsI've acquired lately. Or this using 5 inch squares... And today..I went back and bought a larger swatch of Sanderson fabric which will go with them all and this. My friend Carol recently made a bag out of similar fabric (it is a black.. photo isn't great)

I MUST NOT GO BACK TO THAT SHOP .. I MUST NOT GO BACK TO THAT SHOP!!! he he.

I love the button bags! I am a material shopaholic now! The ladies down at Spotlight in Manukau told me yesterday I should just bring my bed in cos I am there so often! LOL
It is soooo addictive. Have a great weekend.

Your bags are lovely Karen and what a neat thing to do with the swatches.
The Sanderson fabric is pretty too.

Happy weekend
