Strawberry shopping bag

I couldn't resist this strawberry fabric at the shop. It has such a great summer feel. (click at the picture to see the fabric close)

Yesterday I made this simply shoppingbag with the fabric.
Today I used it.
I always use these kind of simply fabric shopping bags. It saves plastic and they are very good-looking don't you think?

Yes!! Off course I had to buy strawberries :-)

Lovely bag.

I love the fabric. So cheery & summery. It reminds me of fabric a friend used to make a dress when the long button down dresses were in style. hmmmm. If she still has the dress, we could spend the weekend making bags...

Dear Lucy, I hope it is just being tired of blogging that has led you to stop, and not anything difficult in your life. I have enjoyed your blog so very much while you were doing it, but I understand that people get burned out. So thank you for the hundreds of great posts and photos you have shared with all of us.
