Another Sew Together Bag

Lately my scrap bin has been overflowing, so I decided to make a scrappy project.  Too bad these little projects didn't make a dent! Guess I will need to make a larger project. Once I was about half way through this little set the boy decided it would be a perfect gift for his sister who also quilts. So Happy Birthday Sis. The bag was made in a scrappy manner so I could use as many of my favorite prints as possible. 






I am so happy about finally overcoming my fear of zippers because every time I make a new bag it becomes my favorite! All the contrasting colors actually play nice with one another. 



This week the boy and I are headed up to Acadia National Park in Maine.  I'm pretty excited to do some camping and hiking around the island. I will be sure to post the journey once I get back or follow Patch_the_Giraffe on Instagram! Any recommendations from those who have been?

  3. Fabulous bag Chelsea! Scrap projects always seem to create more scraps than they use in my experience too :)

    We visited Acadia National Park on our cruise last year, it was beautiful have a wonderful holiday.

  4. I'm so envious of this bag. I was just thinking about adding a sew together bag to my to do list but then I remembered how long that list is, another time I suppose. Enjoy your trip to Acadia! I've never been before so I hop to see a bunch of beautiful photos that make me want to go ASAP when you get back!

  5. The colours really do play beautifully together. You manage scrappy but coordinated perfectly.

  6. Very nice! I gave away a bag of scraps to a hand sewer for applique and it barely made a dent too!
