The name ThistleDew came from my parents.
They owned a boat when I was young and that is the name they gave it.
"Thistle" (sounds like) This will....and "Dew" (sounds like) Do. Hence...This will do!!

My Flea Market Bag

First and foremost I need to thank Lisa at "Polka Dot Cottage" *(formally Polka Dot Creations)....Thank you Lisa for the inspiration to start sewing again after so many years and also thank you for sharing all of the buttons you have created! :)
and another thank you goes out to Tanya at "Grand Revival Designs" for the Flea Market Bag Pattern I found while "Googling my Life Away" looking for a purse pattern I would like to attempt!... :) I wish my bag was made in the "Barefoot Roses Collection", but I got the material for this bag at Hancock Fabrics when in search of material...be sure to go check out all of Tanya's collections of fabric....there is a new one due out this Fall called "Happy Girl Style"...

"Melanie's Got a Brand New Bag"



Hope you enjoyed the show... now off to Grill some Ribs and Fry some Hot Bananna Peppers for supper... I wish you a "Great and Creative Kind of Weekend!"

Nice bag! And the button (I saw it up close in your other post) is really fantastic. Great work!
