    Default Fabric + enthusiasm - planning = mystery project

    Ever had one of those moments where you want to stitch, have the fabric, but have no definite plan or project in mind?

    I've got some upholstery fabric (bought it in a thrift store - one of those display folders that you pick your fabric from), and I've cut it from the binding, so I have about 18 x lumps of fabric - all around 15-20 inches squarish...

    I have this idea that they'd make a great tote bag or at the very least the lining for a great tote bag. I just don't know. Might just go ahead and do a bit of crazy patchwork to put it all together...
    It's 8.15 pm on a Wednesday night... let's see what I can do

    I, too, have a bunch of upholstery samples. I haven't decided what to do with them yet. These would be a good size for a clutch, but at least two would need to be put together for a tote. I just keep putting it off till I get "a round tuit".
