MINI Duffle

I found this fabric online and emailed it to Husband. Lo and behold it arrived in the mail in a few days. It's a MINI (MINI Coopers manufactured from 2002 on) duffle not a mini duffle! He owns a MINI Cooper S and it happens to be red so this was the perfect fabric for this project.

There are a surprising number of older Classic Mini's (manufactured prior to 2002) still on the road.  The twins dad has one that dates back to 1978. It's cool. The steering wheel is even on the 'wrong' side. The Brit's consider the steering wheel placement to be on the correct side!

While I'm on MINI's and Mini's.... Every year there is an event called A MINI Vacation in Vegas (AMVIV), where MINI's from all over the country drive to Las Vegas for a week of festivities. They are everywhere!  So if you know anyone with a MINI or a Classic Mini tell them to check out AMVIV. The 9th AMVIV commences on June 14, 2012 through June 17, 2012. Check it out here.

Now, back to the charity quilts!

Wonderful Fabric! My 13 yr old daughter is obsessed with Mini Coopers - where did you find this fabric? I would love to make a tote for her from this!
