"I love you"- the homespun way

Some people are easy to love. This bag is for one of those people. I have a friend who has been walking around using a large ziplock bag for a purse. This just won't do and so I finally got the courage to make my first bag. I have been wanting to do it for ages now, and this was the perfect opportunity. I needed a way to say I love you to a woman who brings me groceries when I am sick, who listens to me babble on and on about whatever my passion happens to be at the moment, who calls me every day to make sure I am doing ok, and who brings me deserts when I am depressed. I don't say "Love ya" very easily, but sometimes it is needed, and I think this bag will do the trick.
I used a gorgeous cord for the outside and lined the inside in flannel birds. Tweet tweet...surely the site of that beautiful fabric will express my feelings. And if it doesn't? Well, that button will...beautiful buttons can express anything!

Oh, and if you are wondering...why, yes. I did rearrange my living yet again. I can't help it. It's a sickness I tell ya. I re-arranged my family room last week too. I like to keep my family on their toes...they never know where the furniture will be when they walk into a room. The element of surprise is always there. I am not sure what I will do if I ever fnd the "perfect" arrangement. Probably find another one.

I love you too Becka. The flannel on the inside is so sweet I love looking at it and the button is just perfect. I've got my bag filled up and proudly wore it out tonight. Thank you!
