The Alice Bag is a new design by the Australian designer Gail Pan - and is a very simple design, combining applique, embroisdery and quilting. This pretty kit, that included the pattern, all the fabrics and the blue cord, was from Cross Patch, an online shop based in Wales, here in the UK. This was my first attempt at hand quilting, and I used a selection of Valdanini perle threads from the Welsh Summer collection, which worked perfectly with these pretty fabrics...
...I used two pretty green flower buttons from my button tin for embellishment, The pale blue linen background is lovely to quilt qwith, and looks fab combined with these pretty prints...
..the drawstring bag was quite simple to construct, and it's a really useful size for keeping sewing projects and bits and bobs in. I'll definately make another one of these, especially as my daughter Alice has already put in a request for a batik one!
