Well hello cute people!
I want to show you what I sewed a while back...
and lots of them!
I went on quite the bag sewing frenzy.
It all started with my
fabulous friend Monica
Let me explain.
Monica sent me a picture of a bag
that she had pinned.
The bag was made by
and was adorable!!!
I smiled when I saw that Erin
had used my Sew Cherry fabric.
The pattern she used came from
a tutorial by my friend Ayumi.
Monica wanted to make one and I did too...
so long story short...
she had the great idea to
sew our bags together!
I said...Heck Yeah!!!
The bag takes 5 fat quarters
and we decided that I would send her
5 Sew Cherry FQ's and she would send me
5 of her HMYY fat quarters....
so that we could make bags out of
each others fabric!
Here's the bag I made from
my Sew Cherry fabric line.
It was so fun and easy to make...
Ayumi has the best tutorials!
I love how the bag gathers at the top.
Here is a view of the inside...
just waiting to be filled with
all kinds of good stuff.
Here's the one I made out of the
adorable HMYY fat quarter's
that Monica sent me.
Isn't her fabric so happy and awesome???
But the fun didn't stop at just 2 bags...
we also decided that we needed
to make one out of DS fabrics...
here is my version.
Inside the DS bag.
Of course you know that I
couldn't stop there...
I just had to make one from my
Daisy Cottage line...
Inside Daisy Cottage bag.
Then to top it all off...
we really wanted to make a sweet bag
out of our
Inside my PKM bag.
I had to cap my lunch bag sewing frenzy
at 5 for right now so that I
could move on to sewing samples for spring market with
But I'm sure I will be making
more in the future!
to go straight to Ayumi's great tutorial
if you want to make one of your own...
but I bet you won't stop at one either!
And to get you started...
I'm giving away 5 of the very same FQ's
that I used
to make my own
Sew Cherry bag...
Along with one of my favorite candy...
the classic Big Cherry.
I'm also throwing in a pack of
Doublemint Gum because
Monica dubbed us the
"doublemint twins" as we were
sewing our bags together and
sending pictures back and forth...
Monica lives a few states away from me
so we had a
"virtual sew along"
It was sew fun and I'm sure
I will be doing more virtual sewing
with friends again!
Just leave me a comment on this post and you are entered in my giveaway...
I will draw a name this Monday at
midnight my time and
announce the winner on Tuesday...
But that's not all!...
Because Monica and I are
the doublemint twins...
she has posted about our
double sew along too...
and she is also hosting a
giveaway as well on her cute blog!
and see my friend Monica
and the bags that she made.
Leave her some bloggy love and
enter to win her giveaway as well!
Have a quilty kind of day my friends:)
