Cam has been planning a sewalong for August, and this one I am definitely going to be in.
She's called it the "Choose your own bag adventure".
I've been gathering supplies from here, here and here.
And looking here for inspiration, and here of course.
It's my attempt to get something ready early - really early. The first of the bags for the teachers.
The black is from the Parson Gray 'Curious Nature' range and it was Brianna who inspired it with this quilt she made at Sewjourn.
I'm using the red for the lining - nothing like a pop of colour to brighten up the inside of your bag.
I plan to tackle a few new things with this bag - such as adding a zippered inner panel/top to it, so it can actually be zipped shut. So I want to take some time so I don't have to rush.
Want to join in??
There's plenty of time - and Cam has a great range of Nikki's patterns in her shop.
I can tell you from experience she will get yours to you super-quick and it will be beautifully wrapped too.
Go on, be brave!
