I just barely finished up my little friendship bag for the swap that's due on Tuesday. Rachel, of P.S. I Quilt and Moda Bakeshop, wrote a great little tutorial for it.
I'm warning you now though, don't make one if you can't resist small adorable little bags. You will want to make a million more!!
When I realized I could use my Hushabye (Tula Pink) charm pack and some extra yardage I had I was so excited! I think it's adorable! And I really don't want to send it away.
This is my first attempt at free-motion quilting. I hope my partner doesn't notice (or care). It's a little, um, shall we say..... wonky?
But I really love how quilting blends all the different prints together. And how about the inside? The stripe in this collections is SO striking.
I even patchworked the handles from four of the leftover charms.
All in all a fun little bag and I see more in my future. Perfect for hanging on someone's doorknob with a little treat inside!
Now it's your turn! What did you do this week?
