Indie Project Bag Pattern & an Art Gallery Fabrics Giveaway!

Monday, September 24, 2012


Yay! It's fat quarter gang day today!  It's my turn up for a project this week for Art Gallery Fabrics!
I'm sharing my newest tutorial the INDIE Project Bag Pattern!  Anyone who knows me knows that I always have tons of projects on the go.  I never go anywhere without at least one knitting/sewing project.  Along with my projects I always have my trusty journals to write and sketch more ideas in.  I even keep a journal beside the bed for ideas like the INDIE Bag when they pop into my head in the middle of the night.

 

The INDIE  Project Bag came to me late one night when I was laying in bed having trouble sleeping. Sometimes when I can't sleep I think about sewing or knitting and the methodology soothes me.  I was thinking of all the projects I have on the go and trying to schedule in my mind when I was going to get them all done.  I realized that in order to make it easier for me to transport a lot of my projects at one time to my weekly knit nights or meetings for upcoming projects I would need a bigger project bag.  Not just any project bag though. A simple tote just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. I wanted one with some attitude.  A bit of modern, a hint of retro and of course, some quilting goodness.

 

I knew I was going to be using Pat's new line Indie and I had been daydreaming that day about how much I loved the line.  All of a sudden visions of the dashes and angles from two of my fave prints in Indie popped into my head and the design of the INDIE project bag was born.  It's fun to make, a great project to practice your quilting/topstitching skills and just think of all the fabric and color combos you could use!!


Want to here/see more about the INDIE project bag and make one with me?  Pop on over to Art Gallery Fabrics for more yummy pics and a fancy PDF download with pattern pieces! 

 

But don't forget!  One of you is going to be a lucky winner of a fat quarter bundle of Indie by Pat Bravo for Art Gallery Fabrics!! Seriously one of my fave collections of the year. Yay!!!!  Here's the deets:

    Besides one mistake when I sewed the whole bag together, flipped it out to find it was the wrong way for both the outer AND lining...grr. It's all fixed now...and I LOVE how it turned out.
    Thanks again:)
