This is Maggie Bonanomi's White-on-White Wool Applique Bag design from the latest issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine. It knocked me out, and I know lots of others love it too! So, taking inventory of my supplies, I saw that I could make up kits for this great bag. I substituted a lovely, oatmeal wool for the sometimes hard-to-find (and pricey) silk matka Maggie used, and combined it with a slightly lighter, natural wool for the appliques, five antique ivory buttons from my personal button stash, and a skein of ivory linen floss for hand sewing. For the lining, I chose a nice, tan and brown reproduction shirting fabric.

I've priced this kit at $20. Only two are available while I search for more oatmeal wool for the outer bag!

In stitches,
