Bird Print Tote and the Sound Track to My Life

The picture of the fabric panel is really a picture of the shower curtain that I talked about in the June 9, 2011 blog.  It is the KAS Oslo bird fabric from Joann Fabrics.  It comes in two other colors, and I think it may be my all-time favorite fabric.  I had a big chunk of it leftover from the shower curtain so I decided to make a nice big tote from it.  I made up the size/design as I went.  There is an outside hidden zipper pocket, an inside double zippered pocket, a gusset zipper closing, and leather handles.  Quite fancy.  The whole time I was making the bag, I listened to the songs on my iPod and realized that they would all be perfect as the sound track for a movie about my life.  Now, I am not saying that my life would make a very interesting film, but I really think that we pick music that speaks to us at various times.  As I listen to all the songs, on shuffle, I remember different periods of my life, friends, family, jobs, even travels.  Some tunes make me feel young again, some make me miss people that are no longer around, all are personal.  My favorite CDs tend to be soundtrack CDs by various artists.  They fit well with all the actions and moods and scenes of the movie.  So, when my life story movie comes out, the soundtrack is all ready to go.  Just shuffle through my iPod.  Jerilynn
