It's Sunday again already. That means it's the day to share a little bit of my fabric stash :0) Today I chose a few fabrics that won't be in my stash for much longer. I will be making Market Tote bags out of them. I found the tutorial over at Film in the Fridge's blog. HERE is the link to the Market Tote Tutorial. Now for the fabrics.......
From Left to right: Green Floral print I picked up a bit ago at Joann's Fabric, Heather Bailey's Dotted Paisley in Peach(the first 2 will be paired together), Heather Bailey's Large Peonies, and again Heather Bailey fabric called Peonies in pink. I will pair the last two with a pink linen like fabric. I will post again with a finished product!
I have to say Heather Bailey is my fave, well one of the top 5. Can you tell by my stash post?! I am very drawn to bright fun colors. Heather Bailey's fabrics definitely fit the build :0)
Anyhow, it happens to be a rainy Sunday here.....Perfect day to sew and get thing done around the house. I have a week to fully prepare for my first craft fair. I have a ton of tissue covers made, totes cut and needing sewn, and a bunch of other items I'd like to get done. I already have a variety of purses sewn up, I just need to slip stitch their linings closed. Here are 12 of the 20 tissue covers. I will be giving some away as X-mas gifts. You can find links to make these HERE and HERE. Super easy project. I got the tissues at the Dollar Tree, Pack of 6 for $1.00. Thanks to Abbie telling me about them :0)
I have however finished my first order and wanted to share the final product. Here are 4 of the 25 change purses I made.
I have a second order from my step mom which includes 6 tote bags with the vintage skater print. I have completed 2...well I still have to top stitch them. I had to order more of that particular fabric. It arrived Friday, so now I can complete them all. Take a peak!
I used a Moda Tote bag pattern I got from a quit show. It was $2.50. It is also the first pattern I had ever sewn. I did tweak it a little. The handles were just sewn onto the lining at the end and you could see the stitched box with X on the outer part of the bag. I did not like that too much so I hid the end of the handles. It looks so much nicer. This is a good sized tote too. I lengthened the handles per my Step mom's request.
OK apparently I have a ton to get done so I am off to the sewing machine. I will post again with some finished goodies to share with you all. Enjoy your Sunday!!
