It had been 2 months since I had made any new drawstring bags, but after seeing Terri's, Nova's, and Monica's bags, I got itching to make some more! I made two sizes, the Project size (found in the pattern), and the Everything size (found in the tutorial). I used a mixture of favorite and new fabrics! I love having new bags to circulate, you can never really have too many. You can see all the bags close-up and the fabrics I used in my flickr stream: here, here, here, and here!
You can find the tutorial here, and the pattern (with all 8 sizes), here.
Scout Tee by Grainline. It actually worked out pretty well!
Pattern: Wiksten Tank by Jenny Gordy, Fabrics: Innocent Crush by Anna Maria Horner.
Sunday Morning Quilts book signing at The Sewcial Lounge! I got to see Anna and meeting Amanda Jean was so fun, she's super sweet and her quilts are beautiful! I left feeling so inspired to dig into my scraps! And look what else came home with me! A bunny scrap!! I have a bit of this sweet print in pink from Christina, and now a little yellow from Amanda! I do love my bunny fabrics! I spent some more time perusing the book last night, it's really lovely!
