Dreamin' Vintage Quilt Market Projects Part 1
Monday, April 14, 2014
Happy Monday! This week is all about Dreamin' Vintage! It's arrival is imminent and much anticipated around here. I can hardly wait! So, it's time to finally share the projects I made for my Quilt Market booth last Fall! Today I'll be sharing the bags, accessories, and garments, and tomorrow I'll share the home projects and quilts. We'll finish things off with the coordinating blenders and solids on Thursday!
You know I can't let new fabric pass through here without making drawstring bags, right? You might recognize these bags from the Gusset Video Tutorial I did for Fat Quarter Shop! I made the snack size, everything size, project size, and artist size bags! They can all my found in the Lined Drawstring Bag Pattern. Don't forget, the everything size is still available as a free tutorial!
I made a few tote bags as well! A large market tote bag, a library size tote bag, and a scrappy smaller tote bag. The larger two are based on my own measurements, with a few fun details. The scrappy one was a ready-made bag I already had that I sewed a scrappy pocket to! It was a fun way to use up scraps!
I stitched up a few simple zipper pouches with gussets. I didn't use a particular pattern but you can see how I make zipper pouches in this tutorial.
Anna's 241 Tote Pattern was perfect for showing off the versatility of these prints! I used two prints paired with sandstone Pure Element!
Since I had very limited fabric, I had to get creative with the garments I made. I knew Rae's Ruby Dress Pattern would be perfect! I paired my favorite print with parisian blue Pure Element.
I had to sew up my tried and true standby, the Wiksten Tank Pattern. I paired this print with quartz pink Pure Element.
Finally, I tried making a simple skirt! It ended up a little too small, but that's okay! I used the Colorblock Skirt Tutorial and paired the print with parisian blue Pure Element.
A simple craft apron seemed appropriate! The apron is split into four pockets for lots of storage space! This will be a free tutorial coming next month! I paired the prints with sweet pea Oval Element.
Another simple but pretty project was an infinity scarf!
I couldn't resist playing with the warm/cool contrast I love in this quick and easy scarf!
See you tomorrow for more Dreamin' Vintage projects! You can see more photos of these projects in the Dreamin' Vintage Flickr set.
