Bucket Bag

Excited about the 2 fat quarters I was lucky enough to get at the meeting, I immediately began dreaming about what I would create. To a quilter a fat quarter is probably a nice amount of fabric. To a garment sewer, let's just say it's pretty skimpy. Consigned to the fact that this beautiful linen would not be a garment, I decided on a tote. I had seen the Bucket Bag pattern over at SewMamaSew and just knew it was perfect. So without further ado, here is my bag!!!

Melody Miller of Ruby Star Rising

Last night we had the pleasure of hearing Melody Miller of Ruby Star Rising, a young new fabric designer. First let me apologize for the rotated picture of her new line. It is adorable, just like ALL of her designs. I swear it is rotated (and saved) properly on my computer, but for some reason blogger rotated it back. Oh well, you can still see how fabulous it is. Not only does Melody design cotton fabric with Kokka, she also has a pattern for sale on Etsy - an elephant shaped tooth fairy pillow. How cute is that! And our own talented Jan has her work (another adorable dress for Delilah, the best-dressed toddler ever) featured on Melody's blog.
