I posted photos to Flickr a few days back, but hadn’t gotten a chance to blog about this yet. I made a hoop travel bag using the pattern I bought from Amanda and Ashley’s shop, The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. It went together super fast!
Seriously the hardest part was figuring out which fabrics to use. I finally settled on this fabric I’ve been holding on to for a few years now. I got these adorable kitties at Joann’s, designed by one of their in-house designers. It is one of the better feeling fabrics I’ve encountered there and wish I would have bought more than a yard.
I picked up the flower fabric, funny enough, when stopping for a quick visit with Amanda this summer. The two fabrics worked well together. In interior fabric was some Erin McMorris and was decided upon by chance. I had Jeni pick a number while Skyping one night, and that was my final choice for a lining. I’m glad the colors at least work somewhat well. It was just getting ridiculous how long it took me to pick fabrics. And the zipper was a perfect match to the lining – bonus!
This bag has been great for holding my current project and keeping it safe. I really love it and have plans to make more for friends!
