No other name really fits.....
I have had this divine Jolie Pomme fabric sitting on my shelf for over a year. It came straight from Tokyo in The Great Fabric Haul of 2013. And today, it was plucked off said shelf for project "make a gift for my 16 year old God-daughter". I used THIS tutorial by Thimble - it was very straight forward and dare I say - simple!
The quirky detail in the fabric is just amazing. Dancing cats and bunnies wearing scarves - Love!
I popped in to Spotlight this morning and grabbed some of their $1 Fat Quarters - this bag used almost two FQ's of the green chevron for the handles and top part and about 2/3 yard of outer fabric and lining fabric. The lining is a gorgeous stripe that was also at Spotlight in the $4 clearance quilting fabric pile! I think it may even be a little on the "organic" side. Winning.
I added a little zipper pocket on the inside using my tutorial HERE, instead of the pocket included in the Thimble tutorial. The thread is a divine Aurifil Green #5017 I picked up last time I was there. It was one of those "jump out and grab you" kind of colours, that I really had no plans for - but it was PERFECT for today! Here's hoping the teenager loves this bag as much as I do!
I'm linking up - You can too!
