Cleveland , Ohio...
One of my co-workers is going off to college, so I thought I’d whip up something to take along with on her new exciting journey. I still have so much left over curtain fabric, so I thought this would be perfect. The lining fabric was a remnant from my grandma, who tried sewing 50 years ago and bought a TON of fabric and then gave up and never made anything with it. This is a pretty sweet gift (in my opinion) and it was totally free on my end (even better). I squared off the corners so she could fit books easily inside. I hope she likes it!
