this is so great! How big is it? And what fabric did you use along the borders? Is is essex linen?
This is one of Sara's patterns on my too do list. Did you think it was pretty simple or was it a more difficult pattern. Love all the beautiful fabrics you used.
I just found this pattern yesterday and here it is on TB. I know it comes in two sizes and the site said the larger would hold a sewing machine for taking to retreats. I can't wait to hear what Sixmunchkinstitching has to say about the pattern. It's a fabulous bag, +Sixmunchinstitching and I'm so happy to see your version. Beautiful.
Quilterinmotion Skynme Caribousmom I made the smaller of the two, which ended up about 14" wide, 14" high and with a 7" gusset. The pattern itself is not too bad, though the zipper is a bit trickier as you taper it on either end. I'd recommend grabbing a zipper longer than she recommends for the pattern to allow for more wiggle room. I love her patterns! They're always so well written and easy to follow. And, yes, I used Essex linen for the bag as well. Thanks for the comments! :)
Thanks for the tip on the zipper :) I just bought the pattern!
I'm definitely buying this pattern; I'm heading to my very first quilt retreat in October so this would be great to take my sewing machine in, and one for my clothes, etc. Thanks for the reply.
