I was lucky enough to be one of Julie’s newsletter contributors for this month, with a pattern for this mid sized cross body satchel:
I used the lovely, summery Apple Of My Eye, by the Quilted Fish for Riley Blake. Julie had so many other possible options that I also considered:
- Cocoon – Cashmere in Blue Moon with Shine in Aqua lining
- Piccadilly Circle – Filligree in Brown with Deco in Teal lining
- Rhapsodia – Boho Stitches in Dark with Folk Vision in Salmon lining
- Ric Rac Rabbits – Wreaths in Cerise with Tossed Bunnies in Grey lining
- Vintage modern – Vintage in Pebble with Swirl in Sky lining
There were another 3 lines that I originally saw that have since gone out of stock, but so many more options have replaced them!
**Edited to add, if you’re looking for the pattern pieces, you can find the main piece here and the pocket piece here. Thank you to Moe for alerting me!
I’m linking this up to Jennifer’s Summer Sewing Contest :o)
Beautiful bag. Well done you!!
What great fabrics!!!
I love this bag should have swiped it when I had chance 😉
Such a cute summer bag! I love the yellow polka dots in the lining!
I love this bag, really nice.
I like the sound of those fabric combinations …. although I can't see them the names are very evocative! I especially like the first and the last two …. and then when I read Taryn's comment mentioning yellow poka dots, well I just love polka dots because I can usually see the contrast between the dots and the background colour really well 🙂
What a scrumptious bag!! I'm off to search for this fabric!
Fan-bloomin-tastic! imho 🙂 you are a clever one!
(Sorry got my football head on!) x
Neat bag, I really like the pocket under the flap!
