When I got paired with @kittykill in the Color Box Swap, I just knew pink was going to be one of her colors…fortunately, she listed “candy colors” as well. I panicked at first, but then I remembered some fabric that I had tucked away from my trip to New Orleans a few years ago .
I went there with my husband and our good friends. I decided to explore parts of the city while they were headed to the French Quarter since I have been to the French Quarter a few times. I caught the trolley and ended up in the coolest neighborhood with neat little shops. I found a fabric shop, but, boy, it was way out of my price range but I was too embarrassed to walk out without purchasing anything. I then saw this Robert Miller fabric and knew it would be something I would use to make a nice summer yukata style robe. I bought 4 yards.
As I said, it was long ago…
Fast forward…@kittykill had a bag on her list, so I thought I would give the rice bag a try. I found a YouTube video and went to town. I loved making it and want to make a few more for my crochet projects…it is padded so it can also work to hold embroidery and other crafts!
