Another One Off The List



Last December or so, I wrote a blog post offering a Pay It Forward gift to one of my readers. The lucky recipient was Mary-Frances of Outside the Line blog. What you see in the above photo started out as two 1-yard pieces of coordinating fabric that had been in my stash for a few years waiting for the right time to be made into a project.

The first thing I made was the bag ...


It's from a pattern in Quilt Magazine (perhaps the Apr/May 2010 issue) called Daytripper Bag by Jana Nielson of Izzy and Ivy Designs.

When I made the bag, I had a few squares of fabric left when I boxed the corners for the bottom, so I used those squares to make Mary-Frances a matching mug rug...


Stay tuned later this week for closeup photos of the other goodies that Mary-France received...

Great bag and mug rug! I am sure she will get some wonderful usage out of both.
