Description

Getting ready for the May project for the Pretty in Patchwork Holiday Sew Along.

Using yarn-dyed Essex linen in black with patchwork squares in Comma.  Lining selections are FQs from Comma. 

Speaking of linings, is there an error in the materials list in the book?  It says you need 3 FQs for each bag.  I'm assuming they meant one, because the measurement of the cut pieces can be made from 1 FQ.  They give instructions for 3 bags, so I think that's where they got the 3 from.

Those fabrics look so lively against that lovely linen. Good choice. I think you are probably right about the FQ's. Instructions often leave info out. Whenever I write instructions, I proof them more then once and still make assumptions. Writing good instructions is as much a talent as creating the project.

woo... I love how the essex linen looks with the comma fabric. I've got some I was trying to pick a background for and that's great!

Fun fabric combo! Aren't those mini charms all just so adorable? And this reminds me I was going to mention about the 3 fat quarters in the group.

Kristi-I love the fabrics you chose for these adorable modern bags! What did you use for the ties? Great fabrics for the lining-as pretty inside as outside!!

Sewzalot the ties are packaged bias tape. I'm too stingy with my fabric to cut it up for drawstrings! LOL
