Hi friends! It's Karen from Creamcraft Goods. I'm excited to share my latest project for the latest licensed Jane Austen collection from Riley Blake Designs - Sense and Sensibility. If you are a Jane Austen fan like me, you will love this beautifully curated collection of prints taken directly from the original Jane Austen quilt.
For this project I wanted to create something that I think one of her characters would use or even Jane herself! This Pretty Drawstring Tote can hold your everyday treasures, a book or two, journal, and more!
For the body, I made a large hexagon panel which I stitched together and machine quilted using a decorative stitch. I added tea-dyed eyelet lace (which I dyed myself, to give it an antique look) to hold the velvet ribbon drawstring.
