I really enjoyed working with these fabrics. The colors are so bold and compliment the designs so well. It makes it fun to combine fabrics and use them in projects like this. This Maker’s Tote was fun to sew up, I really do enjoy the challenge of getting the binding just right. Although nothing is ever perfect, I do like putting in a good effort to produce the final tote. In hindsight I wish I would have added a layer of SF101 behind the main exterior pieces because of the fabric being a bit thin, but otherwise it was a fun make.
I can imagine this one being loaded up with art supplies! I am teaching this tote at my local quilt shop, Olive Juice Quilts in a few short weeks. It’s always fun to be in a group of people all sewing up the same project. Seeing something come together from just pieces of fabric and interfacing is so exciting. Each person’s take is different and beautifully unique. If you’re interested, here’s the class info.
I’m also excited because Quilt Market is this week! I won’t be attending, but the buzz on Instagram is always fun to watch. It seems like I can hardly keep up with each new fabric line out there, but it’s always fun to see the amazing booths and new projects that sprout up. I know the designers put so much time and effort and creativity into all they do.
Lastly, I was wondering if anyone was up for a small sew along using the women’s tunic pattern in my book? I’ve been meaning to sew one up for ages, and now that it’s finally warm enough here to actually wear one without all the layers of sweaters, I thought I’d ask. If you’re interested let me know in the comments.
