A Lovely Year of Finishes A Lovely Year of Finishes And, one more project added in under the wire. Since my first project, Ainsley's minky top, is up to her to finish, I am adding another project that I planned for December and made yesterday. It is from a pattern by my blog pal, Stephanie Dunfy.
The bag is for my daughter, Diane. She picked the bright tomato red coleus fabric for a hand bag. I put longer handles and an extra pleated inner pocket for her knitting. It turned out smashing!

And, here is the finished minky top:

    1. "It did turn out rather nicely, didn't it?," said Mrs. Darling in the Disney Peter Pan movie. I will make more of this style of tote, no doubt! Thanks to Loft Creations.
