In the aftermath of finishing the Quadrant Blanket Times Three, one person commented that the colors in the afghan were reminiscent of candy, and I have to say that when I dis-assembled the Quadrant Blanket proper and added the orange and purple squares to what I had done previously, the afghan did remind me of on of my favorite candies from my childhood: LifeSavers®.
Now that I am preparing to fully immerse myself in working on my 2011 North State Fair project, it occurred to me that the stash bag I love so well would also work as project bag, and in the last few days I got started making a project stash bag based on LifeSavers® candies.
I began with a Red Heart Super Saver cherry red base:
From there, I added a row of bright yellow and dark orchid:
followed by Red Heart Classic emerald:
From there I went back to the Red Heart Super Saver in cherry red:
followed by another ring of bright yellow:
and finished with a ring of dark orchid:
Next, I added handles: one in the bright yellow and one in the emerald:
Finally, I filled it with stash for a couple of photos. One from the side:
and one looking down:
I absolutely adore this bag, and I will get a lot of use out of it in the next 8 weeks as I work on my state fair project. After that, I might retire it from use as a project bag and see how it works for groceries.
