Lined Drawstring Bag in Hello World

"Lined Drawstring Bag in Hello World"

Pattern:  Lined Drawstring Bag Tutorial by Jeni Baker

Size: 7"w x 10.5"h x 3"d

I added a layer of fusible fleece to the exterior bag once it was pieced and quilted it with some straight lines just to give my bag some more structure.

Fabrics:  "Hello World" Mini Menagerie Multi Panel (I just used the hippo & the giraffes) and Itty Bitty Pink by Cori Dantini for Blend Fabrics.  It was the hippo that sold me but all the animals are adorable. The panel also includes a bird and a zebra.

The back:

Happy Quilting!

Egg Cozies

"Egg Cozies"

Pattern & Tutorial:
Pattern by Josie Day of Sew for Soul

This gave me an excuse to purchase some of the cotton/linen blend from Cotton & Steel.  It was a delight to work with.  I attached fusible fleece to it before appliquéing the various animals with Lite Steam-a-Seam 2 and then top stitching with a straight stitch.
