Sugar and Spice for Something Nice
I got a call from one of my sisters with a great request. Seems every year at this time she buys something to donate to a fundraiser for breast cancer. This year, she wants to buy one of my bags. She loves the Sugar and Spice bag I made for her, so that was what she decided she wanted. She loves the look of black and tan. She picked this fabric. Not black and tan but black and cream. I think it was a great choice. I had a fabric that I thought would go well as the lining. Of course it would have my go to croc vinyl for the upper and lower straps.
I love this Sugar and Spice pattern by Chris W Designs. I never used rivets before Christine's patterns and I love the look of them. With the right sized punch, installation is pretty easy. They certainly make the bag look more professional.
I used store bought piping and used my piping foot to attach it. I won't go on about my piping foot because you have heard me do that more than once but you won't believe how easy it makes this dreaded task.
This bag has plenty of pockets inside and out.
I love the peek of lining fabric by the recessed zipper.
This pattern remains one of my customers' favorites.
This bag will go on a table to be displayed with all of the other donations. People will buy raffle tickets and will put those tickets into containers in front of the items they want to have a chance to get. Let's hope the container in front of this bag is full of raffle tickets! Thanks, Linda.
