Today ... The Chubby Charmer! Thank you to Terri for inspiring me to make this. Thank you to Susie for inspiring me to make it as a Christmas gift for one of "my girls." I think she made 4 and Terri made several too.

I made ONE.

But I had a blast ... back in my sewing/quilting rooms - Yes, they are separate rooms. It was great to sit and sew and listen to music and commune with my fabric.

I sort of followed the pattern, mostly. 

I did not quilt on my domestic machine. I did need backing (which will never be seen by anyone - ever) because, of course, I quilted on my Handiquilter.

I swear this fabric is never going away.  I have used in for "invisible" backing on several things and I still have a little bit left.

"invisible" backing ... fabric that you have no idea of it's origin, for a quilted bag that will be lined with something way nicer.

All quilted ready to be trimmed ... then turned into a bag.

Here she is ... one completed Chubby Charmer!

This is a gift for Christmas. 
Check that off my list!!

I made one of those once. I swear it took me longer to make that than any of the quilts I'd made up to that point. I guess I've made a few since that took longer but I'm not eager to tackle one of those bags again anytime soon! Yours is really cute.
