Making Laundry Pretty

Last week, after a frustrating day at work, I indulged in fabric therapy.  In a little less than three hours, I whipped up this bag (very) loosely based on this tutorial I found on-line.  It's a laundry bag for a young lady who grew up in foster care and is now headed to college as an honors student.  The quiet time with my sewing machine and pretty fabric, a reminder of why I do my job, and the satisfaction of a finished project at the end of a day where I felt I was spinning my wheels - this little project packed alot of punch.
