Lily Blog Tour

Hello! Welcome to the Lily Fabric Blog Tour! Lily Fabric is designed by Sue Penn for Penny Rose Fabrics. She has been designing fabric for almost twenty years and it truly shows in Lily Fabric.  With mint, pinks, yellow, floral's, gingham's, and sweet polka dots, this line is simply beautiful and so in line for springtime. So, when I was asked to create something for the release, I was so excited and inspired to make something pretty!

I made a quilted, springtime bag with hexie detailing. I quilted the side panels and used quilt batting to keep the bag soft and light.

I created a large zippered pocket for the backside so it can hold your phone, keys, and such.

I added inner pockets so it can hold more things like a wallet or a phone, or if you like are me, baby toys, bottles, pacifiers. Oh I didn't tell you, I have twins! I usually add all kinds of pockets to any bag I make because of the stuff I have to lug around ha! Aren't the polka dots and tiny floral's just so sweet?

I also had time (while my babies were napping) to make a cute pouch using a weaving technique I've been experimenting with. I thought it would be a great way to showcase the floral's in the Lily Fabric line.
