A PERFECT ZIP BAG

A good friend of mine celebrated her birthday yesterday.  I wanted to get her a little something but wasn't sure what to get her.  She seems to have everything a girl could ask for... great nails, the most stylish clothes & the most amazing shoes (seriously, she has quite the collection!!).  I thought about getting her a gift card but it just didn't seem personable enough.   Instead I made her a Perfect Zip Bag, pattern by Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson!

I made Style C in the large size
Pretty darn cute if I do say so myself ;)   I used fabrics from my stash for the patchwork.  There are too many different fabric lines to list but if you want to know the name of one of them feel free to ask in the comments and I will reply back.  The main fabric is Kona Cotton in Medium Grey.
Lining is Cheery Circles from the All Star 2 collection by Riley Blake.
A couple of weeks ago I saw these 'THIS TOOK FOREVER' woven tags over at OCD~Obsessive Crafting Disorder and couldn't resist ordering some for myself.  They crack me up and simply let the recipient know just how much you love them ;)  You can purchase your own here.

Linking up to these fabulous blogs

Finish it up Friday @ Crazy Mom Quilts
