Does this ever happen to you, I went to look for some fabric today for a class I am taking soon, we are making a Chameleon handbag which basically is a bag with a reversible jacket.

So armed with my list of supplies I went to a great fabric shop I found recently whilst surfing the net, this shop has so much fabric I am sure you could spend weeks inside looking!.

I didn’t really know what I wanted but thought I may buy some black fabric for the main body of the bag, well how wrong could I have been.

There are such fantastic fabrics out now the choice is endless so after walking around the shop for what seemed like ages and not really finding what I wanted I enlisted the help of one of the shop assistants.

I explained what I was looking for and whilst talking I was drawn to a bay that had some great looking bright fabric which I think was Cath Kidston but the lady said to me this could be fun to use for a bag and pulled out a roll of fabric with Scottie dogs on.

So this is what I ended up with.

The bottom fabric will be the main body of the bag, the next one is my lining and the top two are the jacket, so I will have dogs or spots as the mood takes me!.

Couldnt be any further away from black hey,  oh well never mind.

I have bought all my other bits as well zip, threads, wadding, vilene etc so all I have to do now is read my instructions and prep all the fabric before class.

Hopefully I will be posting the finished bag in a couple of weeks, so we will have to wait and see how it turns out.
