A little business before I get started on a recent project. The winner of last week's giveaway for Shannon at Luv in the Mommyhood's latest pattern, The Sally Dress, is:
This past weekend was not only Labor Day but also my sweet momma's birthday! She's been strongly hinting that she wanted an Amy Butler Weekender Bag. So that's what I made her!
Bonnie and Camille fabrics for it - with a few random red, white/low volume, and teal/aqua fabrics thrown in. I love how it pulled together! Red and aqua are two of my mom's favorite colors - and it will match her red luggage set for our trip to the Quilt Festival in Houston at the end of October/November!
A Simple Life line. I like that it makes the bottom of the bag a little easier to find inside.
Ellison Lane Quilts, paper piecing pattern. It's a freebie and super simple! I love how it complements the vintage vibe of this bag.
I think that she likes it! :)
