It's my day today, to show you what I made with this Beautiful Bird fabric by Elizabeth's studio's.
Thank you to Lana, for being such a great hostess and keeping us going while our wonderful Samm is concentrating on personal matters.
My sweet friend Pat sent me a panel of the Birds and one of the tree, and as soon as I received it, I thought it would look great on a bag or two. Here's the fabrics I choose to go with the bird panel. Which I fussy cut.
My family of 6 are big readers, especially my daughter and I. And when we go to the library, we have to have BIG bags to bring home books for everyone (Even my 3yo loves getting books.)
So I decided to update our library bags. I used my original pattern, but didn't put in the zippered pocket and I used patchwork on the front and back. I also quilted it this time, where as in my original pattern, I just used interface. (It's fun to look at one of my first patterns. It's about time I updated it I think. lol)
After cutting up the tree panel, I decided it wouldn't work right in my pattern. I just used the light green instead. I got the pink bag. I love pink and green together. Each side has different bird prints.
My dd is partial to blue, so I looked thru my fabrics to see what I can use for hers. These bright sunflowers look nice with the Birds too.
These bags are BIG, they are 15" square and 10" wide. So they hold a lot of books.
The straps are sewn all along where they touch the bag, to add strength.
Thanks for stopping by today. And don't forget to visit the other Ladies and see what beautiful projects they made today.
