When I went to the Autumn Quilt Festival at Duxford a few weeks ago, I bought this funky fat quarter bundle of "Music" collection by Henley Studio for Makower. It's perfect for anyone who likes music or guitars and was perfect for the projects I had in mind! Another toiletry bag was on my "to-do" list for handmade Christmas gifts, and I set to with "Anna's Sminkepung" pattern by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. I've scaled it up a bit, and changed the layout of the fabrics. As this is for a man, I didn't add any lace trimming, and quilted it with a variegated orange Gutterman Sulky thread in a simple cross-hatch design...
..and here's the finished bag - now I just need to get some toiletries to pop inside and that's another gift crossed off my list. This fabric is available at Secret Garden Quilting and I've already ordered from them online again!!
