"Gucci" pink

Isn't this cute!? Pink and orange is starting to grow on me. First red and aqua, then Kaffe's, now pink and orange. I love the strips! Hopefully my SIL loves it as much as I do. I am kind of forcing it on her.

So everything is together, but the zipper and the reversible handles. I think I have it figured out. Now I just need to get to that chain that I can't stand. Unfortunately or fortunately, I live 30 minutes away and so I try to lump together all the errands on one day. And today is the day. I will be going down to visit Gail and to go to a board meeting. Fun and not so fun.
The inside is exactly the same configuration as the outside, to make it easier to reverse. I'm really loving the firework fabrics too.

I also got around to the cute giraffes. I had that "Gucci" pink thread in my machine and figured I should continue with the pink stuff. This bag will not be reversible, as it just has plain pink lining. Still cute though. I quilted around every other giraffe, kind of makes them pop and holds the batting in there.
Sorry these pics aren't the best. The lining is just pinned to the bag front, and not very well.
I showed this bag to my Daughter and asked her what fabric she wanted a bag out of. Guess what she said? ALL of them. Boy if she wasn't my darling Daughter...

All day yesterday I had a silly phrase going through my head. It's bad and I don't know where it came from. It just came back, "I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts". Where is that from? And why is it in my head?

I'm going to try to get rid of it with something else, but let me know if you know where that comes from.

Take care, Brandie

Brandie, your bags are too cute! I had to laugh at the "Coconuts" stuck in your head remark. It seems to me it's from one of those silly Bob Hope movies on a tropical isle somewhere in the south pacific, but I'll be checking back to see if anyone really knows.

The lovely bunch of coconuts came from the Lion King. Zazuu sings it....=)
