Remember when I told you about this?
I was so happy to receive Stephanie's book Uncommonly Corduroy. Right away I found some projects that I knew I would make.
Here is one of them…
I call it Travels with Lilly instead of its pattern name Travels with Lou. Why? Because I found this awesome Lilly Pulitzer fabric at Laura’s. (And I didn't ask for permission to call it anything else!)
To understand the pattern name, I strongly suggest you purchase the book. (I am not compensated in any shape, form or fashion for my excitement over this book...which is chock full of patterns and you can't beat the price for all you get!)
I changed it up a little bit…’cuz that’s how I roll J
I added a monogram to the outside pocket. (That's all I changed...so I didn't roll too far)
...Found "fabulous" buttons at Hobby Lobby
Stephanie gives you enough pocket space so I created 3 slots...cuz I'm blind and needed the extra spot
I'm packed and ready for the SUMMER :)
I look forward to making a more traditional bag for the fall. I promise to use corduroy because that was the original intent of the pattern and also because I think it would be so COOL.
One thing I forgot to share with you is my FINISHED Granny Stripe Afghan…again, inspired by Stephanie. Do you see a pattern here?
I added a reverse single crochet border and called it DONE! It turned out just a bit larger than a lap size.
I'm so happy that I changed the yarn.
It looks nice on DH's bedroom reading chair.
My STAYcation is going well. DD's room makeover should start soon...wish me luck!
