I am desperately seeking more of the frog fabric I used on this bag:
The pattern is called "Ribbit" and it was manufactured by Waverly about 5-6 years ago. I bought several yards a while ago, and this has been a very popular bag for me. So popular, in fact, that all I have left is a small scrap. The bag in this picture is my very last one.
Last week I got a phone call from a woman who owns a gift shop; she has been using and enjoying one of my frog bags for several years, and she wants to carry them in her store. Not realizing I was completely out of the frog fabric, I agreed to make several and send them to her! Later, looking through my fabric, I realized my mistake. Yikes! I quickly went online to search for more "Ribbit" fabric, and there is none to be found. I had to call her back and break the bad news. She was very quiet, then said that she had already called a customer--a lady who collects frogs and has admired the owner's bag--and told her that she was getting a frog bag for her! It occured to me that I might possibly have one frog bag left at the store where I sell my work, so I told her I would go out there and check. YES! The very last one was still there.
If you have any of this fabric, I would love to buy it from you or swap you for it. Or if you can give me any information leading to a place where I could buy it, I will send you a little handmade reward--how about that??
The shop owner still wants my bags, even if they aren't frog bags; she placed an order for seven of them (plus the one remaining frog), so I have a busy week of sewing ahead!
