This whole fabric diet thing is harder than it looks. I'm actually doing great when it comes to quilting fabric. I'm not craving any new fabric for quilts. I have lots of quilting projects planned out and haven't even been scoping out quilting fabric. Fabric for other projects is a bit harder to resist. A good friend "needed" a Jane Market bag. I just didn't have any perfect fabrics to make one for her. I bent my resolve a bit and bought some 1/2 yards of Washi by Rashida Coleman Hale. I figure it was for a gift so it's okay, right? I admit I love this fabric. The colors are fun, and the designs are so unique--just perfect for a market bag. I bought enough to make two market bags.
My other project with this fabric was a needle book for a gift. I saw a couple tutorials online, but ended up doing my own thing.
Finally I have these 4" squares leftover from the market bags, cut out to make the boxed bottom. I'm thinking of sewing them up for some coasters.
Now back to the fabric diet...
