My mother-in-law, Diana, recently gave me a stack of sewing and quilting magazines a mile high (lucky me, I know). I looked through some of them so far and fell in love with a handbag pattern in the August issue of American Patchwork and Quilting (by Better Homes and Gardens).
The pattern shows how to make the most adorable handbag out of two dish towels and a pair of handles. I grabbed a five pack of towels while at Target yesterday and just finished this baby up! Totally simple, really cute and the four outer pockets are really fantastic. This was my first try, but it's worthy of being sold in the shop. I can't wait to buy more towels. How fun! I couldn't locate the pattern online, but if you see this issue in stores, do yourself a favor and pick it up. This bag took me about a half hour to put together.
