Kimberly Sac Sew Along

My friends at the Fat Quarter Shop invited me to participate in the Kimberly Sac Sew Along and I had to say yes. This is a lovely bag designed by Joanna Figueroa and it's easy to make too. You will find the pattern here.

I decided to use some of my most favourite fabrics, all designs by Carolyn Friedlander from her Doe and Carkai lines.

I quilted my bag very heavily, using my domestic machine. The quilting was fun, and with such a small project the dense quilting did not take long at all.

Kimberly and Joanna even made a video to show us all how to make this bag - the pattern is here.

This bag is a good size for me, just big enough for my stuff but not so big to be really heavy on my shoulder.

My one modification was that I skipped the clip on hardware for the strap as I did not have any on hand. Otherwise, I am very pleased with this bag just the way it was designed and I made it in accordance with the pattern.

A number of bloggers are part of the Kimberly Sac Sew Along, you will find links to all of them on the Fat Quarter Blog today - well worth checking out.
