Hidden Cottage - Versatile Envelope Bag

Hello! I hope you all had a great summer! My kids have started kindergarten and we are moving into Fall. So that means I have more time for Fall sewing! This new collection - Hidden Cottage by Minki Kim for Riley Blake Designs is the perfect collection to start off Fall sewing! Minki always has the perfect color palette and prints, and the fun thing about most of her collections is her "hexie cheater prints". What a great way to showcase each print from her line!

For this project, I created my Versatile Envelope Bag because it's a great way to show how different prints from a collection can go together. I'm also teaching this class in about two weeks, September 16-18,  at Garden of Quilts in Utah! And another surprise - I'm going to release this pattern for sale after the class event, so stay tuned on my Instagram for more info!

Here is what I made:

















I hope you enjoyed my project! Hidden Cottage should be hitting stores soon, so check your favorite fabric retailer to see if they are carrying it!

Thank you!

Gathered Tote Bag - Flea Market Fresh

Hello! Here is my project for the newly released Flea Market Fresh Fabric designed by the uber talented Cathe Holden for Moda Fabrics. Just in time for spring flowers sprouting everywhere, this collection embodies the refreshment of Spring. Cathe has the best eye for gathering old and new together. The colors in this collection are fresh, smart, and go so well together. Her love for ephemera and olden times shine and I'm so excited to share my project with you - Gathered Tote Bag. 

I created a two-tone bag to showcase the lovely prints and possibilities it has to offer. This collection has a lovely selection of colored stamps and I wanted to show them in the best way possible, so I made them into the main pockets of the bag. The curated floral botanicals was a perfect backdrop for the stamps.  This bag is roomy, so you can hold all your essentials and even some of your shopped items when you go to the market. 

I hope you enjoy this project. Here is what I made:















Flea Market Fresh is starting to hit stores now, so check your favorite quilt/fabric shop to see if they carry it.

Thanks!

Anne's Patchwork Tote bag

Hello! Here is my project for licensed Anne of Green Gables by Riley Blake Designs - Anne's Patchwork Tote Bag. In my mind, Anne is a bag lady just like me, so to keep it in Anne's classic style, I created a patchwork panel to showcase all the beautiful prints from the collection. The color palette is classic, beautiful, and gives the vintage style feeling I love and appreciate. I think rounding it off with book page text is a perfect way to bring the collection together. 

The tote bag is a classic shape. I added sturdy leather handles and a zippered top to keep everything safe and secure. The back has a zippered pocket to hold your necessities for quick and easy access. There's also a zippered pocket inside. I hope you enjoy this new bag.

Here is what I made:













I hope you enjoyed my project. Anne of Green Gables is out now, so check your favorite Quilt/Fabric shop to see if they are carrying it.


Thanks,

Karen
