Cheri W loves the By Annie patterns, but then who doesn’t, and her project was the Easy Does It. The wonderful thing about By Annie patterns is the tabs she includes that you can cut out to keep track of your pieces as you cut them. 

You can find By Annie patterns here, or check out the local shops, several of them carry her patterns.

Bonnie D took a glass plate from the discount store and used her fabric to make it shine!

Chris B shared a folded case that’s perfect for cosmetics or craft tools. You can use mesh or vinyl for the pockets. Use 3 coordinating FQs or buy yardage for a 2 color combo.
