I made this for a friend…
…using my new nest egg tote pattern and a block from my alturas quilt.
The fabrics are a mix of things that I pulled on the fly. There’s some doe, botanics, and architextures, as well as Robert Kaufman Essex and Chambray, Kona Pickle, and a mysterious blue sewing print from my stash. The decorative elastic that I used was a perfect (and lucky) match. I stocked up on a few colors when I found them at The Common Thread in Austin this past summer, and I’m glad that I did. This color came in super handy. When I used it here, I folded it in half and topstitched it together for a more streamlined look.
In keeping with all things round, I thought it’d be a fun touch to throw a doe roll-up in there along with some other sewing-related goodies.
