find my Sewjo I got the idea to make some little retreat gifts for my BQFs. The awesome Aimee is always making me adorable things (totally love her!!!) and I'm the bad friend who never reciprocates (though I do always pick up the check). I got hooked on making these cute little Lined Drawstring Bags to go with my ABCs and decided my friends deserved some too. The LDB is prefect for any occasion and a great stash buster... I had so much fun picking out color combinations to suit each of my friend's personal style.
Daisy Chain and Heather Bailey Chevrons.
Cotton + Steel. I decided to make the contrast band and interior from one piece of coral linen leftover from my Sewing Circle Tote. You'd think this would make things easier but somehow messed me up.
Deer Valley mixed with Seafoam and some Lily Ashbury Summer House. I am totally crushing on this color combo from my Mod Log Cabin quilt!
Michael Miller Littles. Preppy runs in the family;-)
Shape Flex (SF101) to the exterior fabric to give them a little more body. It depends what you're going to use them for but I like a bag that will stand up on it's own.
Tomorrow is Worldwide Quilting Day... I'm on retreat with the Boston MQG and we're sewing up a storm. How will you be celebrating?
