I have been busy as always in the sewing room. I had a request to make a lunch bag for my daughter, Nicole. It turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself:
I dug into my Kaffe Fassett collection and put it to good use. The inside of this lunch bag includes a pouch for an ice pack or maybe a snack. It’s also lined with Insul-Brite which should keep things cool (or warm).
The pattern came from the book, Lunch Bags!: 25 Handmade Sacks & Wraps to Sew Today from Design Collective.
My next finish is really just a sneak peek. It’s so hard for me to keep a secret! I have been working on my tutorial for the Christmas in July Blog Hop. I made a Patriotic version of my project and I can’t wait to show you the whole thing! But we must be patient….
And I really shouldn’t be starting a new project, but I just can’t resist this pattern, Metro Rings, by Sew Kind of Wonderful. I’ve picked up some blue and brown batiks and I’ll see what I can find in my stash too. I already think I’m going to like it:
I’m looking forward to getting some quilting done over the long 4th of July holiday. I hope you all enjoy yours!
