Today is my stop on the First Blush Blog Tour. First Blush by Ruby Red Designs will be in stores next month. These fabrics have a summery and vintage-sheet vibe. I really needed another project bag for my hand-sewing projects and I thought these prints would be perfect for a quick and cheerful project.
I kept the design simple and used only a few different prints from the line. On the outside, I used wide strips of some of the blue and green prints.
I used two of the yellow prints to line the interior, and a light blue floral to add a pocket for storing smaller objects inside the roomy pouch. I quilted diagonal lines using aurifil thread.
This was an extremely satisfying make: cheerful fabrics, relatively quick, and an oh-so-useful finished project. If you're on my Christmas gift list, chances are you'll be getting one of these bags.
Now for a giveaway. Windham Fabrics is generously giving away a of First Blush, and a small box of coordinating Aurifil thread! Just leave a comment on this post by midnight on October 27th and I'll randomly choose a winner on October 28th.
