Summer of U.F.O: Finished Object #3

My boyfriend's manager got married last May, so he thought it would be fun to make them a grocery sack holder, using fabrics representing each of their interests, as a wedding present. Of course, I ended up making it but he did help and did a great job choosing the fabrics. I thought it would be really hard to find fabrics that matched their interests, but my local quilt store had a fabulous selection.

Her likes: Boston Red Sox, cooking, Eric Carle books [The Hungry Caterpillar], and purple

His likes: NY Yankees (and yes he did wonder how they made it past date #1!) and space.

Here are the fabrics sewn together:

And the finished bag:
