"Please don't feed the Wildlife"!!

I don't mean to ..... honestly!!! It's just that at the moment our mandarin tree is LADEN with yummy fruit and the possums are just loving them!!!This is the sort of thing I'm finding in the mornings, sometimes just a little bit nibbled .......sometimes half eaten ..........and sometimes just the empty skins!!!!!
I think they're really enjoying them!!! I don't mind, there's plenty there to share :o)!!
*
Onto more 'stitchy' things ... I have another finish for July!!!!! Yahoo!!!!! I finished my box bag today. No name for it yet, thinking I'll just call it the box bag.
3 pockets inside, one with a button closing flap ......loads of room inside - it's 10 1/2" square!!!A pocket on the front with a button closer and also a tab to close the top of the bag too!!I think this bag would be very handy to take to the craft shows - so I tested it out for you .........
There are 6 jelly rolls, 3 charm packs, 3 layer cakes and 2 sweet buns in the bag ... and there's still some room in there!!!! Yep ....... just right for the craft shows :o)!!!
I'm off to write up the pattern :o)................

Yum Yum for the fruit & the box bag. I must add your patterns to my wish list. I'll suggest it to my family for my up-coming birthday.

Love the bag!! It's nice and roomy and I love that it has a flat bottom for sitting. Would be great for holding my stitching too! :0)

YOu designed that!!? wow!
I'm thinking it would be a great diaper bag... but then again.. I need to move past that phase. My 2 year old is starting to use the potty and she is the last one (that's what we say right now. ha ha).
ok... other uses... book bag, craft bag, market bag, etc..
very nice!! i love it.

that's a gorgeous bag Joy - so lovely that i think it needs a prettier name - box bag just doesn't do it justice!! however, being a person of very little brain this afternoon i can't think of one!!!

Hey Joy! Oh ... I know what you mean about wildlife eating your produce - at least YOUR toothy critters haven't killed the tree! I had a lovely, lush passionfruit vine near the back door that had SOOOOO much fruit last year and the rotten rodents chewed off all the leaves and buds, then ate the bark and effectively ringbarked my poor vine! No passionfruits here this year! :0( Love your new bag pattern too - sounds like a VERY handy size! :0) Bear Hugs! KRIS
