I saw her beautiful bag on Flickr the other day and fell in love with it. I've been dying to make a bag/purse and have been wanting to use my Echino for it and wha-la, this was it! (Kaelin, you were my inspiration-I hope you don't mind!!)
So here it is-my first purse/tote bag!
Nikki tote bag pattern by my friend Michelle of I Like Orange, Too!
|Nice and roomy inside|
|That zipper pocket was so easy!|
|Echino patchwork fabric and chocolate brown corduroy|
I'm most excited that I'll be traveling handmade to the Sewing Summit- Yippie!
Sewing Summit- it is less than 3 weeks away! I can hardly wait. Don't you want to come too?
In addition to the Across the Sea Quilt-Along, I've also been working on a few behind the scenes projects that I can't show you quite yet. There is a BIG FUN event coming in October that I am excited about. I have a feeling you will love it too.
I can show you these little pouches I've been making.
They are super fun, really quick, and make great little gifts.
BTW, I ordered my little labels from Inked Papers on Etsy.
I'll leave you with a sneak peak of tomorrow's post.
Be sure to check back because there's a giveaway involved!
BTW, I'm linking up to Megan and Sew Modern Monday today.
