Hello! I have a couple of things to share with you today!
We have the wonderful privilege of working with Blend fabrics again this year. We always get excited when we get that email nearing quilt market. This year we are sewing with Geofabulous by Maude Asbury. We are making a bag for them to take along to Fall Quilt Market. The bag pattern is a new pattern of ours called “Felicity“, and it is already at the pattern testers getting its final touch ups. It should be released very soon and added to our shop. I have seen a couple of finished “Felicity bags” (one is mine) and I love them! (Also, I use my tray to carry my projects around it helps to keep them organized.)
I started by making hexagons for the front and back panels of the bag. Geofabulous is really a pretty line of fabric to work with. Nice and colorful and lots of great prints. I think it looks great in hexagons too. P.S. Blend Fabrics are so lovely to work with, it has a very quality feeling!
The hexagons will be sewn onto the main print fabric for the outside of the bag and then will have the other fabric shown here for handles and binding. It also has a frame purse in the middle, which I can’t wait to use. I think it will be really pretty and a very useful bag to have. We will be showing more pictures as we finish it up. Maybe you want to be thinking about what you would like to use Geofabulous to make.
The last thing I wanted to show you was what I use for small tool storage. Donna had a cute little planter for hers, and I use these little buckets. I had to get them all together to show you. One for crochet hooks, that I am hoping to use soon. Another one to hold pens and pencils for marking and writing lists. And lastly, one for my rotary cutters, so they are easy to find and don’t get lost under piles of fabric.
I hope you have a great weekend!
