I have a friend and she called me one afternoon and asked if I could come over and help her put a bag together. I went right over and saw this. I loved it! So I helped her put it together and took home her leftover 2 1/2 inch squares. I needed 122 of them and she had 125. I would have never even have looked at this fabric, no less purchased it, but I loved her bag. I need to open my mind.
