|I've been playing with cork cloth and really finding it super easy to work with. From a half yard cut ($10), you can make 4 wallets or 4 cosmetic bags or 2 of each.|
|This is a shot of the cosmetic bag inside. Visit us during our Holiday Open House, Dec 6, 7 & 8 and we will give you a free pattern to make this cosmetic bag.|

I know this is selfish but, I was really hoping for a little snow last Sunday. I parked my machine by a big window and was planning to sew and watch it snow all day.
Well, I did sew all day but there was no snow out my window. I put borders on two small quilts I had been working on. Then I started this flannel tote bag (pending straps) and made this wallet from our new cork fabric.
