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!
