Our friends from Australia came last week, and I just couldn't stand not to make her a bag. She's never seen my house really clean, so why start now, right? I mean, she would probably have been seriously shocked if when she arrived the house was immaculate, and the laundry was all in the drawers. She may have questioned my mental stability... I've never been much for house cleaning. Besides, our kids were stuck in the house for most of the visit due to inordinate amounts of rain. Translation... the house got trashed, anyway. Imagine four active kids, and four, sometimes more, adults in this little 900 square foot house. I'm pretty sure I heard our house sigh... no maybe it groaned.
So this is the bag I made her, and it's a pattern I came up with. I was pleased with the dimension in the end. Of course I free motion quilted it here and there. It's too much fun to draw with thread! I did restrain myself a bit on this one, though. I didn't want to interfere with the gorgeous graphic, just complement it.I'm thinking about getting some more fabric from this line and making them up for the shop. The weight of the fabric is lovely to work with and I adore the saturated colors.
