SCREEN BAG AND AWESOME FABRICS


Saturday night I stayed up and made this fun little Screen bag.  I made one for my mother a while back.  Her's was wider than this one so I am having trouble deciding if I like the wider one or this one.  Those are pockets in between the handles



Here are some awesome Honeycomb fabrics.  My husband gifted these to me for our 36th anniversary.  There are seventeen colors at six yards each.

I just have to sigh with happiness.


Here are just a few of the lovely colors


These fabrics came from Marshall Dry Goods (Wholesale).  Anyone can order them.  My sister, Beverly, and mother drove down there last year.  About five hours away and back in one day.  You are tired when you get there but oh my gosh.....the excitement of all that fabric will perk anyone up.

We were like kids in a candy store.


These were ordered by phone and of course there is a nice shipping fee but even with the shipping fee these fabrics were less than 2.50 a yard. 

You might be thinking....oh....for that price the quality is not very good. 

 I am here to tell you that the quality is excellent, the colors vibrant....and if you doubt me, come  see and feel....  Oh yes, I am unselfish that way....I will let you feel my fabric any day.  Getting it past the door is another story.

I also wanted to mention that I am not affiliated with this store at all....I am just a gal that knows a good deal when she see it and a husband that feeds my addiction.

Last time I purchased some seconds (bundle) and I guess I got lucky because I hardly saw  the flaws in the fabrics.

They do have a retail side that you can get smaller quantities.

Enjoy your day...from this picture I am sure you know where I will be....pet and fold....sigh
pet and fold....sigh

Such a cute bag and lovely fabrics! Is the screen hard to work with? I've seen it around but never purchased any or tried to work with it.

Beautiful bag, I have some of that and....forgot all about it! I'll have to pull it out. That looks like an amazing store, they don't put prices on their web site??

Love your bag. Was looking at the fabric on that site. Where did you find the prices and where is it located.

I can't believe what a fantastic husband you have! He's a keeper. Love those fabrics and love the bag. Is the screen difficult to work with?
