This selection of batiks has been in my stash for simply ages - and I decided at the weekend that I really NEEDED to put them to good use! I used an AnnAKa pattern that I have used several times before, called "På Quiltelaup" and set to work, cutting and stitching and quilting. I used a Gutermann Sulky variegated thread that I bought a couple of weeks ago from the "Cosy Cabin" when I went to a Quilt Guild regional day. This bag has a "secret" pocket on the front and the back of the bag...
...I added my own twist on this bag, by adding internal pockets (I used a pattern by Elizabeth Hartman for this - it's my favourite method for internal zippered pockets) and also a special clip for keys -there's nothing so annoying as not being able to find your keys and having to rummage about in the bottom of your bag for them!!...
...and finally the large Prairie Points on the front of the bag are decorated with 2 buttons to secure them in place. This was made with a 5 fat quarters of batiks for the bag, the binding, the Prairie points and the pockets both inside and out, and a half metre of fabric for the lining.
Hi - welcome to my blog! If you want to share or pin any of my pictures, please link back to my blog, as these are all my own photographs. There are links on the sidebar to the quilting shops that I purchase fabrics and patterns from. I do not sell patterns or fabric, and please don't offend me by asking for photocopies of the patterns that I have purchased.
