I’m not much of a bag maker. I am mostly a quilter. But last year at Sewing Summit Amanda (seriously one of my fave people to follow!) taught a class on how anything can be a quilt. Something about a quilt just radiates love to me. I love that feeling of time and effort that has been invested in a tangible way. It seems that as a wife and mother, so much of my time is spent completing tasks that come undone as soon as I turn my back.
So when the lovely Susi offered to swap bags with me, I knew I wanted to make something special. I really love making gifts. I try to make sure that the gift is perfectly suited for the recipient. I knew Susi liked Heather Ross, so I pulled out my Unicorns. Doesn’t this design just make the unicorn ‘pop’. I think I fell even more in love with these creatures making this bag!
This little Unicorn was perfect on this little bag. I used the tutorial on Colleen’s blog here
These new dictionary prints are flying off the shelves, so grab some while they’re here! If you want to try your hand at winning a fat quarter of each, leave me a quick comment letting me know your favorite thing about Fall. Mine is the cooler days and more time out doors. I think I was made for sweaters and wool socks! Bonus entry if you happen to follow me on Facebook 🙂
Off to go cut pretty fabrics and hopefully finish up a my Tula Pink Sew Along quilt but I’ll be back soon with a couple of quilty finishes!
