This week has not been very productive in the sewing room,but I did finish a new bag for myself.
Last year my friend Jamie,over at busy bee quilts sent me a sweet little package of pink and green fabric! It sat on my shelf all this time just waiting for me to decide what to make with it. A couple days ago while hanging out in my sewing room,these fabrics were whispering to me...
Sometime last summer I had purchased a Mini Twister template and pattern,this was the perfect project to try it out on. The center/mini twister section of the bag has every fabric Jamie sent me and also some Kona bright pink from my stash.
The back side of the bag is a pink mini gingham print from my scraps,the polka dot fabric also came from the scrap bin :) For the prairie points,I used the parts cut off of the corners to give the bag its boxy shape.
For the straps,I used more scraps from making the rest of the bag. I also used a zig zag stitch on the edges of the straps/handles.
The inside,is a allover tie dye heart print,picked up at Joann's a couple years ago. On the back side there are four pockets made from another scrap of green fabric. I am sooo tired of winter weather,and this bright bag is just what I needed! I will be packing all my sewing projects for vacation next week in it! Thank You Jamie :0)))
I have another bag in progress,but am not sure if there will be time to finish this one up before we leave. The center piece for this bag was a gift from Daphne over at Ivy, Phillis and me! If you have not been over for a visit you should,she posts great recipes. Thank You Daphne :0))
