Playing With Even More Fabric Swatches
Well, even though I haven't been here on my blog for a week, don't think that I haven't been busy. I completed the two bags that I am testing, one for Janelle at Emmaline Bags, and one for Christine at Chris W Designs. I love them both and can't wait to show them to you when they are released. Until then...
As you know, I have been given fabric swatches to play with. Most of these swatches are about
17" x 11-1/2". I have made a wallet with a couple of them that you can see here. I have also made Buttercup Evening Bags from them that you can see here.
Today, I want to show you two more things that I have found to do with these swatches. The first thing has been on my to do list for awhile. It is a Open Wide zipper pouch from Anna at Noodlehead. I made the smallest version because I wanted to run the stripes up and down. I think I have enough fabric to do a medium size pouch if I cut it out side ways. I'll try it next time.
The second thing that I did was make a Zip and Go from Erin Erickson of Dog Under My Desk. I have made many of these bags already and found that if I combine a swatch with a solid fabric for the back and straps, I have enough fabric to make this bag. I'm sure you recognize that the fabric on both of these projects are the same but in different colors.
I still have this fabric in two more colors left. I'll have to see what I can make with them.
