Opinion anyone?

I found this fabric in a give away pile at my sewing class.














I would like to use it to make 2 of these bags. Any ideas on color to coordinate? I have red on the brain for the black "blackboard" but am lost on the green 'blackboard". The pattern calls for 3 FQ..but I'm in a stash diving mood lately. Amazingly, when ever I dive...I usually find JUST what I'm looking for...IF I'm patient! It has happened about 4 or 5 times in the last week! I think my fabric angel is trying to tell me something!








I'm not a huge Halloween fan...but the stash coughed up this CUTE fabric. Don't you love the googly-eyes and candy corn. This bag went to a little girl whose mom is in my sewing class. Her mom was making a dress from the purple fabric. I just HAD to try this pattern to 'go with'

Green "blackboards" make me think of the bright yellow chalk that all of my teachers used for several years. It was supposed to be easier to read than white chalk on a black "blackboard". So if it were me I'd go with fabrics that contained the bright yellow of that chalk. I don't know if you are old enough to remember that chalk or not.

Beth, could you please email me your snail mail address? I thought I copied it off the package you sent me but I guess not. Once my shoulder heals enough that I can actually do something I'd like to be able to send you a little thank you gift for what you sent me. Thanks!

Those blackboard fabrics take me back to teaching elementary school big time and that's a good thing. I think yellow would go well. I also just love the bag. Such cute fabric.

I don't really have any sugestions on fabric colors but this sure is adorable fabric.

How about the deep antique red that looks like crackle paint? I probably have some if you want it, sheesh, I have some of everything..in case I run short of course!

That's a lovely bag for a little girl. How about purple for the green blackboard fabric or yellow?

I love red with the black. I have the green fabric - have some yellow, orange and green 30s prints saved out to use with it.

I think yellow would be great with the green-board. The Halloween purse is fantastic!
