WHAT GOES AROUND…..
Wait a second! How come no one bothered to tell my that my fashion sense has always been something called “Boho“, or that it’s very hip and one can drop megabucks on new stuff that looks just like the old stuff I wore all through high school and most of the stuff I wear now? My son tells me I’m just an old hippie with an eyeroll when I thank him for the compliment. Honestly, he says that like it’s a bad thing. Whatever it is, I still love everything about Boho, even if I’m way past the belly and back baring stuff and am more into floaty and fringey nowadays. And the jewelry! And the bags! And the Pinterest!
All that being said, I plan a fabric stash dive sometime today with the idea of making a patchwork bag. I have several packs of fat quarters in colors I love, along with some decorator fabric someone passed on to me when their project was finished. I plan to cut them into random squares/rectangles, then cut the pattern. My sewing skills are, to put it politely, more than a little sketchy, but then, that’s the idea, it’s handmade, it’s BOHO, man.
Look what I found in my closet! I think this qualifies, don’t you??!!
