This quarter's box started with fabric inspiration. Tula added a bonus line this year called Parisville DejaVu, which is a rework of a favorite line. I loved the colors and the cameo!! As I was going through that same catalog I found two more color saturated lines that were really great, Belle Epoque and Birds in Paradise.
“Now what to do with these fabrics.” I searched through many sources trying to find new shapes and useful fun patterns. Because last quarter's bag had many zippers and bindings, I was looking for great projects that were opposite to the last projects. The Opossum bag from Sew Sweetness checked a lot of boxes. Great for a daytime tote, check. Can handle a bigger focus fabric, check. Can use cork or vinyl, check.
The second bag entailed a bit more research. I was thinking a smaller bag would be a good companion to the Opossum Bag and discovered the “Carrie Bag” from Sallie Tomato. This bag is a sweet medium sized bag that is great for those evening or smaller outings.
These are bags that can be great gifts and be dressed up to use everyday!
