I don’t have any photos of Katie’s bag except here on Instagram because I took these photos later, but she did such a great job! While I think Katie does enjoy sewing, I’m pretty sure she was cursing me for making her attempt such an involved bag. In the end though you could tell she was super proud and had a new makeup carrying case for her next trip!
I love my bag and still have not decided exactly what I want to keep in it, which probably means I need a new special project just to store in my bag.
–Sew Together bag pattern
–Kim Kight’s Lucky Strikes fabric for Cotton & Steel (this is what I used on my bag, I love these fabrics so much!)
I ended up including a 24 inch box in there and really liked how it looked. I’ve finished sewing it together and even quilted it at this point. I will be sure and get it outside to get some photos of the whole thing very soon! One of my favorite features was a suggestion by my friend Jessee. I was talking to her about the backing fabric and its need to be pieced from two pieces of fabric due to size and she suggested adding a line of blocks to the back so there wasn’t just a seam. I made a bunch of 8 inch blocks and I love the effect. I have already started on my next quilt with Halloween fabrics.
