So you might remember that at the Cedar Retreat in January that I actually got to take a class, well today I am excited to share that my adorable little Improv Bag is done!!! Isn't it so cute :) And I have to give a huge thank you to Barbara, because otherwise it wouldn't be done. My two bag halves have been sitting just waiting for me to sew them together and she took them with her on a little weekend trip and brought them back a finished bag. (So sweet of her ;)
The class and pattern for this bag is by Sandra Workman. I originally saw these adorable bags she designed at Market and have wanted to make one every since, so I was so excited when she came to Cedar to teach them. It was such a fun class, a fabulous pattern, and it was so wonderful to get to know Sandra more. She is an amazing creative genius!!!
This bag is a Quilt-As-You-Go bag and I had so much fun with it. I was just in a zone slapping on pieces and then quilting away. Such a relaxing little project and so fun!!! And of course, we all know how much I love purple, so I raided my purple scraps for this little bag. It will reside in my sewing room, so now it will match the walls and all the mini's on the walls ;)
And in the lining, Barbara even included two little pockets. Now it is just perfect for toting along a project and all of the supplies I need to make it. Can't wait for a time to get to sew away now so I can try it out ;)
And in the mean time, I think this is now going to be the home of my cute little improv basket. It is behind my sewing machine so I can sit and enjoy how cute it is every time I sew. Just loving it.
Again, a huge Thank You out to Barbara for helping me finish it and to Sandra for such an awesome little design and class. I loved it and am so excited to use my finished Improv Bag ;)
Thanks for popping in today and each day ;) I hope you have a very Happy Quilting Weekend ;)
Linking up to Amanda's and Sarah's ;)
