Quilted Stitch Bag : :
Have you seen the new fabric line Stitch Organic by Betz White? In Betz's words, "Stitch is inspired by all types of stitchers and the beautiful handiwork created by them." This collection is completely made up of stitching inspired motifs, including chevrons and hexies, and is GOTS certified organic!
When this bundle of Stitch fabrics arrived from Betz, I new right away I wanted to make myself a bag with them. Something extra large and over-sized for toting to the fabric store or for carrying several skeins of yarn and/or large hand work projects for some upcoming long road trips.
I let my favorite floral print be the main fabric for my new bag. I love this color blue, Betz's sweet flowers, and the chain stitch detail in this print. Isn't it lovely?
I added a thick layer of soft batting between the outside patchwork and hexie print lining, and then I machine quilted with simple, wavy lines.
I'm using my bag for just about everything this past week. I really do love it, as well as these Stitch fabrics! They were wonderful to work with! If you're loving them too, you can find all the "where to buy" info on the Stitch Info page. My sponsor the Fat Quarter Shop carries the entire collection here!
I'll be adding my Stitch Tote photos to the Stitch flickr pool today. GREAT NEWS -- I'll be having a Betz White bag pattern and Stitch Organic giveaway beginning in the morning! Be sure to stop back!!
