C’ville June 2009 Tote

Recommended Posts

I was going through my stash of cotton yarn, trying to figure out what to use for the next bag. Once it is chosen, then I have to pick a name.

 

I came across Peaches and Cream Black Cherry, the colors fascinated me and I was curious to see how it worked. It is black, white and pink.

 

As I was making the bag, I said to Tampa Guy that it reminded me of a candy we use to eat at the movies as a kid. Think of black liquorish with a pink or white shell. Many memories came back of Saturday matinee at the movies. Just me and my friends along with a gazillion other kids watching a movie and eating candy like Good and Plenty, gumdrops, juicy fruits, juju beads, malty balls and Boston baked beans just to name a few.

 

So I decided the next few months, the bags will be a reminded of Saturday Matinees and friends.

 

Let me introduce Good and Plenty our tote for July.

I almost forgot. The color of the bag is called Black Cherry with hot pink sides, white outline and black handles. The pocket is Hot pink with a black hook and white lettering.

i LOVE the colors. it reminds me of the 1950's. i love vintage things and i think those colors are classic 50s.

"Charlie says love my Good and Plenty! Charlie says really rings the bell! Charlie says love my Good and Plenty don't know any other candy that I love so well!" Yup you brought back memories with this one Mary Jo! Anyone else remember that commercial with the simple little pencil drawing of a kid conductor in a train? Nothing simple about this tote though gorgeous!:cheer:clap:hook
