A few weeks ago I went to the Autumn Quilt Festival at Duxford and bought a fat quarter bundle of "Music" fabrics by Henley Studios for Makower from the Secret Garden Quilting stand. I chose another pattern by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa, this one is called "Godværsveske" and is not too fancy and frilly, so perfect for these fabrics. I used Pellon wadding, and this is quilted very simply with a variegated orange Gutterman Sulky thread...
...this makes a small boxy-style toiletry bag, with a curved edge. I've added 2 small tabs at each end of the zipper, and I've added one of my labels to the inside seam...
...and here it is - now I just need to buy some toiletries to put inside, and that's another Christmas gift sorted out!
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
