Bag #6

Now that my sister's bag is complete, I figured it was time to start another bag. I sat in the kitchen for a little while yesterday morning staring at several patterns and was undecided for a least an hour. I gave up and asked DH to pick out a bag. He chose Bag A from the Butterick 4474 pattern (photo - bottom middle). While it took him 20 seconds to pick out the bag, it took me another 2 hours to decide on fabric....damn that growing fabric stash. Does anyone else have this problem?

Finally decided to use the Kleo Pink Cotton Print from JoAnn's. I originally brought the fabric online as my local JoAnn's was out and I made the mistake of trying to buy a coordinating fabric at the same time. Online, the fabric I chose appeared to be a light yellow print, but when it arrived it turned out to be beige. As I was cutting out the pattern I wasn't thrill with the beige fabric but I was too lazy to head out to the store to buy something else so I settled. Now that I have finished the pocket and I'm ready to attach the two layers, I really don't like this beige fabric.

What's a girl to do...
