I found a great skirt in the free pile of my apartment building a year ago. I didn't fit me but I loved the fabric so much I kept the skirt hopping i could use the wonderful wool to make something fun. A few month ago as i started making my holiday gift list i remembered to skirt and found a great sewing pattern to create the Granny Bag. The pattern comes from a wonderful Japanese craft magazine, Cotton Time, and requires basic sewing skills and magnetic closure. I liked the bag so much i made a second one for my self.
