Cutting Into It
I can’t believe I am cutting into my chocolate lollipop fabric stash again. These are some of my favorite fabrics so I have been saving/cherishing them. I made a few things last year, including a set of pillow covers, a purse, a lunch bag with a vinyl lining, and a market bag. This weekend, I pulled out a pile of scraps and made this zippered bag.
Here’s a shot of the inside, where I added a little pocket:
This bag was even more fun than the last one I made because I winged it more with this one. I didn’t follow one set pattern but instead made my own shape and size (8 inches X 9 inches), and added a few features I wanted in one bag. I am working on a couple fabric yo-yos to embellish the front.
Here’s a preview of what I’m working on next:
I’m thinking about adding pink sashing in between each row, and I am planning to add light pink and dark pink borders around the patchwork. It’s going to be a very girly quilt, exactly what I want it to be! I’m so glad I finally cut into my stash to make a few more treasures.
