Happy Friday everyone! It’s always fun to end the week with a fun finish. This is the Market Bag (pattern in my book Handmade Style) that I made a while back for Cloud9 fabrics. It’s made using Leah Duncan‘s beautiful upcoming collection with Cloud9 called Lore. It’ll be shipping to stores in March, which actually feels like it’s just around the corner crazily enough. And there’s also a separate voile collection called Yucca (coming in April) – cannot wait to nab some!
I’ve been a huge fan of Leah‘s work for a long time. I still am hoarding her first collection with Anthology fabrics – Maya. I have managed to use some bits and pieces, but it’s so pretty on my shelf – in due time I suppose. I wish I could remember how I found her work originally, but I do remember seeing her pictures on Flickr back in the day.
Anyway, now that I’m done drooling over fabric! The Market Bag is such a pretty fit for these fabrics and colors. It’s always fun to see how fabrics transform when quilted and I love the texture it adds in this bag (see another version I made here, plus the one shown in the book).
Hope you have a lovely weekend!
