RUSH HOUR IS HERE Day One

RushHOURtagbutton_zps5299c169

Yes, the Rush Hour Blog Hop is here and now.  And let me tell you I really was rushing.  With the change in the weather cold coming on, I was falling fast and did not think I was going to finish in time.  But like the slow person I am, I rush to the finish line and made it on time.

 

Before we get to my rush hour creation I would like to thank as always Madm Samm who always seem to have something for us to do, and Carol from Just Let Me Quilt who will be cheering us on every step of the way.

This hop is about rush hour, and not just the fabric.  Studio E came out with some great rush hour fabric, but we did not really have to use it just as long as the fabrics were red, white, black or  gray.  I was lucky enough to get my hands of some of the fabric and used it for my creation and here it is.  My Rush Hour Weave bag.

bag 1

When you are rushing around trying to get out of the house, you need to grab that rush hour bag and head to the bus stop for work, or to the hair dresser (which I really need to go), or to the fabric store for your next fix on fabric.   This pattern is call Breezy Weave Bags by Aunties Two.  It is has instructions for a small and large bag.   It is not a hard bag to put together once you weave in the strips and I enjoyed making it and will make another sometime soon.

I think my biggest problem was sewing in the side gussets but I seem to have muddle through it with flying colors.

As you can see from above it also had to inside pockets great to carry my Kindle and phone.  It also had magnetic snap closure, which I forgot to get a picture of.  I am become fever delirious sorry.

 

 

 

 

 

I tried to get some better pictures, put with this cold and fever I have, I could only get this done.   Oh baby I am fading fast and ready to hit the bed and take more pills.

I do have a give away and you only have to leave a comment.  I have a 1/2 yard of Rush hour fabric to give away.  I will pull a name at the end of the hop Sept. 30th.  So Good luck on the give away and don’t forget to visit the other hoppers today and tomorrow.

    Hope your feeling better soon. I'm glad you "muddled" through your bag-it's great! I love all those convenient pockets. I love it when women design bags as they know what women need. I'm sure sewing was good therapy for you even though it may have zapped your enery more than usual. Being ill can be so frustrating so it's probably a good thing that you had a project to keep your mind occupied. Thanks for sharing.
