strawberry biscuit blog hop

Hello and welcome to my stop on the Strawberry Biscuit blog hop.  The designer of this fabric - Elea Lutz - has become such a delightful friend of mine and I'm completely honoured that she asked me to share with you some things I was inspired to make with her adorable fabric collection.  I'm pretty sure that you'll be inspired too.  The designs are bright, happy, sweet, adorable, cute, with lots of pink and bows and flowers ... what's not to like?

I've had so much fun sewing with these pretty fabrics.  First up is a cosmetic bag that's pink with lace and strawberries and a little "handmade" label.  It's basically everything my "grey/skull pouch" daughter didn't want. ;)

These pouches are just so darned fast and easy and PRACTICAL, I thought it'd be fun to make another one in the blues from Strawberry Biscuit.  I threw in a little yummy citrus lime solid (also Riley Blake) for a little contrast.

Next up is a tote from a Japanese book by Atsuko Matsuyama.  The original pattern has a cute little patchwork pocket on the front.  I immediately thought the patchwork print in this fabric collection would substitute perfectly - as well as save me some piecing time.

Last, but not least, I found another perfect project for the patchwork print (so cute!) ... one of my own patterns called "Thank Heaven for Little Girls".  (Click here to find the pattern in my shop.)  I've literally made dozens of these sweet little purses over the years for my daughters and all their friends.  I've never met a little girl that didn't like to put all her tiny treasures in a purse to carry around, whether it's just in the house, to a play date, running errands with mom, or to church.

This "cameo" charm was fussy cut from one of the prints ... sooooo vintagy-retro-y cute!

Well, that's it for me, for now. ;)  Hope you enjoyed my Strawberry Biscuit makes.  Click here for a list of all the blogs to visit and the dates of this tour.  There are so many talented sewists and beautiful projects ... I promise you won't want to miss a single day of it!

Love the zipper bag, could you write up the directions if you have time. Would love to be able to have them come together with your magic touch. Where are you finding your cute white lace? I've been looking but can seem to spot some. Thanks for your help.

Such adorable creations! Where do you get the little leather Handmade tags? Love them. :)
April 22, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterAnneMarie
This is such sweet fabric, I particularly like the blue pouch. x
April 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterKay
Yes, please make up a pattern - so adorable and love your gorgeous sewing and details! Even the "skull" pouch was creative and great for a younger person, but truly, all your other work is right up my alley! Thank you!

Love all these beautiful bags with the lovely details and embellishments! Fabric line is so pretty.
April 23, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJoan
I was just scrolling through the comments to see if you posted where to find the cosmetic bag pattern and now begging you for a tutorial!! It is hard to find bags with the zipper tabs and they just look so much nicer on the ends. You just make the cutest things and I have to always buy the fabrics you are showing! Please, please make a tutorial!!!
April 24, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterVanessa
Beautiful work. I would LOVE it if you wrote up the pattern. :)
April 25, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJane
yeah, you pretty much played this one! So many great projects my friend!! Clapping hands emoji enter here,

So adorable, as always. I'm itching to sew some small projects before I begin a quilt for my brother and you have once again inspired me to make some pretty pretties.
Thanks for sharing!

Everything is so dainty and lovely. Oh that ruffly pouch is too much! But what I really want to perfect (as you have done) are those perfect zipper tabs and un-bulky seams. Do you catch the tabs or not? I also gather your seams are invisible, hidden. Oh to make the zip just as pretty so I don't mind giving it away!
April 28, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterElaine Perez
So lovely! I love these pouches - sweet and cute. The colors you picked from Strawberry Biscuit are so pretty. Love your work!!!

Best wishes,

Everything is so perfect! Where did you get your little "handmade" tags? Are they leather?
May 4, 2016 | Unregistered CommenterJenni
Everything is lovely! Would love to know how to make everything! You're such an inspiration, thank you! By the way, love the mug with the beautiful letter "K" .... would you please share where you got that? Would be great as friend's gifts with quilt fabrics as you have shown there :)
