I bought this fabric to make a bag to take with me to Quilt Market. I knew I wanted some as soon as I saw those butterflies and it's even prettier in real life! The question was, which bag to make? I decided on trying this pattern after seeing so many cute versions online. It's a brand new one called Super Tote and it's by Anna of Noodlehead. It's a .pdf pattern too so no waiting when you want to start sewing after 8pm! : )
The main fabric is a linen/cotton blend called Ghost Wing by Anna Maria Horner. The dotty fabric on the side is an oldie but a goodie called County Fair by Denyse Schmidt. You can still find it around online if you look for it. I used Pellon SF101 on all of the exterior pieces as suggested in the pattern.
I forgot how long bags can take to make. For some reason, they feel like a 1-2 hour project. Not! This one took me about six hours (with Mama/kid stuff inbetween). Maybe longer? I started cutting and fusing last night and stitched all day today. Normally this isn't a problem, but I've got packing to do!
Speaking of Quilt Market, I will be posting pictures onto Instgram and Facebook as I go. You can find links on the top right hand side of the blog.
