80%

I got hit with a bit of a flu bug last weekend, and I'm still running at about 80%. I'm at the point where the blah is old and I just want to feel better. Luckily, it wasn't bad enough to stop me from taking my Tuesday timeout on the road this week with my bestie and picking up some wonderful grey woolfelt... 80% wool woolfelt that is. (See how I seamlessly fit the title of my post into the body... twice?) I had big plans for it and today got up the energy to hit the sewing room.
The pattern is this one by Keyka Lou. I made it into a cross body bag and this time added a flap closure. This is my summer version of the same bag, with a long strap as well. Totally a favorite! The lining I put with the grey was a gorgeous cotton left over from the making of this bag. Another favorite of mine.

Remarkably, adding grey to my day brightened it a little. Even though I'm still feeing kind of yucky. True story.

That bag is 100% gorgeous! I never think of gray when I'm buying fabric, but I do love it when I see it made into something beautiful! Maybe I need to broaden my color horizons :)

Oh. Having the flue is no fun. It can really be disgracing. I have to say with all you have going in, your creative eye working well. I really like the bag.
