Pink/Brown Grommet Bag

Wednesday night is my sewing night with the girls. We all meet at the shop and switch off bring supper for everyone. Last night was my night, so I made chicken and rice in the crockpot and it cooked all day at work. By about 3 all my co-workers at my day job could smell it, and were wondering what was up. It was a hit and I had very little left.
After finishing the Claire and helping my friend D make hers, I worked on this grommet bag. I've had it cut out for a while, but needed to pick up the grommets. It turned out super cute, so I need to make up the checkbook cover and wonder wallet to go with it. It'll be given to a friend, but will make it's rounds at Strip Club this weekend and at a demo mom and I are doing for the county fair. We're doing to demos, Quilting for the Clueless and Bag Ladies on Saturday afternoon. I have 6 new samples done for Strip Club this month, so it's been a very busy month!
I ordered 3 fabric panels from an online company last week and received them yesterday, only they only sent 1! I emailed the company right away and they are sending the other two out and they should be here by Sat. I'm so excited and looking forward to receiving them all. The fabric was one we aren't getting in at the shop, but I really wanted it and knew it would sell out fast. So I'll have a quilty package to look forward to this weekend too!

This one rocks too. What is the name of the pattern for this one? I like it better than the pattern I have.

I'm so excited! It's awesome! I'm thinking of making one of those drawstring bags using the teeny tiny gromets that I bought.
