Project Quilting's Challenge 2 was to make something quilted, in Pink.
If you have been here awhile, you might have realized that I don't really do pastels. However, I had a few scraps in my scrap box, so I figured I would try to make something.
I cute my scraps into strips, 1 1/2 to 3 inches wide. I cut a couple of batting scraps inot pieces about 12 x 15". I looked through my zipper stash and found a pink zipper. I looked in my fat quarter drawer and found a fat quarte in pink. After some sewing, some trimming, some more sewing, more trimming and some final sewing, I ended up with this.
This is my new knitting project bag. I needed one to holds a large shawl. Most of my bags are the size that holds socks.
This is the back.
I remembered to add my label, before I attached the lining.
I have had these labels for awhile, but I keep forgetting to add them near the beginning of the process.
It is based on Noodlehead's Open Wide bag. I have made lots of them, though not usually quilted. The quilting was stitch and flip style. Nothing too complicated.
The pink lining is truly not my style, so I must have won it on a shop hop or something. Because scraps yield more scraps, I have a bag of leftover pink scraps to use up now.
These are some earlier versions of my Open Wide bags. They are great for holding knitting, and I think these were gifts to my Knit Night friends.
