My Favorite Fabric

Do you ever find that fabric that just calls to you?  A couple of years ago I came across two fabrics that were the prettiest, most "Me" thing I have ever seen.  I didn't know how much I would grow to love this fabric until it had aged in my stash for a bit or else I would have purchased the entire bolt.
I only bought a half yard of each thinking I was just going to make a little bag for myself and that was it.

But I couldn't cut into it.  The bag didn't do it justice.

While rearranging my sewing area about a month ago I came across these two half yards at the bottom of my fat quarter bag.  *I really need a better way to store those. They are currently overflowing an old clear plastic bed comforter bag*  I was reminded just how much I love this fabric.  "I have to do SOMETHING with this," I told myself with the promise that I would use the great thing that is the internet and find more of it.

Aren't these colors just delicious?

And in that same organizing session, I realized that the little plastic bag (that once held some pillowcases this time) that I kept my frequently-used tools in had a little hole in the bottom.  PERFECT!  I knew I had a caddy pattern somewhere.  Time to get to work.
The pattern I used was another Lazy Girl pattern, this time for the Suzi Purse Insert & More. You can get one here if you are interested. (No affiliation or compensation).



I will definitely be making more of these caddies to hold all of my things.

There are pockets on the inside too!
