Summer Sampler — Block 2: A Quilt For Yelena 2 years ago. Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog. I'm glad you got to do it, though.
Looks very chic though! Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheerah from Love it! Beautiful, classy looking bag. The separate and zippered compartments help keep things organized. Have received many compliments. One friend initially thought it was a Michael Kors.
Love the outside panel to slip onto carry on handled bag. Rated 5 out of 5 by Berfma from Highly recommended! Absolutely in love with this bag! Perfect size for a weekend trip and such a good quality for that price!
Rated 5 out of 5 by masha from Good for traveling Very beautiful bag. I have made several other bags - maybe it's time to give this one a try. You are amazing with these bags!! I am making plans to attempt one soon. How much fabric did you use for the piping and handles?? It's hard to figure out all the measurements when all the fabrics are going to be different. Thanks for all the tips!! I have wanted to try this pattern for a long time, but everything I read says it's VERY labor intensive and not an easy pattern and you have made 5???????
Most people say they will never make another after the first one. After seeing yours, I may rethink buying the pattern and trying it myself. Thanks for taking the time to comment. I honestly love reading every single one! If you have a question you would like answered- be sure to include your email so that I can get back to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day! Friday, March 7, Quilted Weekender Bag 5. I had the opportunity to do something that I have never done before over the last couple months. It was such a great experience for me. It was a super intense project for my first time teaching, but all in all I think it went really well. I had 4 wonderful ladies as my students. We had so much fun together!
I love doing tutorials on my blog teaching how to make some of the things I make, so I knew I would enjoy teaching a sewing class in real life. It really pushed me out of my comfort zone though. I don't like having the spotlight on me and tend to be a little on the quiet side until you get to know me, but it was great for me to push myself a little bit and put myself out there.
I figured it would be beneficial to show my students step by step instructions- just like I do on my tutorials. So I decided to make a bag along side my students.
Each night I came to class with what we would be doing already complete on my bag so they could see and visualize what their bags needed to look like. It was a good teaching tool for me- plus I had already planned to make a bag for my other little sis, so it gave me the motivation to complete it. Here are all of our finished bags together! So here is how my weekender bag 5 turned out. I used a kitchen utensil print that I found at Sew To Speak called Scandinavia Style which I think is manufactured by Westex Fabric for the Main panels but I have had a hard time finding somewhere that sells it online to link to- so if you are interested in this print, you could call into the shop and I am sure Anita would be happy to send some your way via mail if they still have some in stock.
I loved all of the colors in the main print and just grabbed various coordinating fabrics from my stash for the patchwork portion of the bag. It is definitely a loud and funky bag- but that's the fun of it in my eyes! I love putting together something that I know is one of a kind- unlike any bag out there This one fits the bill! If you are a regular reader of my blog, or follow me on instagram , you will know that I kinda have a mild obsession with this pattern- well maybe "mild" is too mild of a word This is the 5th version I have made!
BUT- making 5 and teaching this bag in a class has helped me kick my habit- at least for a little bit. I don't wanna make this bag again for a very LONG time!
Don't get me wrong I love it with all of my heart If you are interested in some of the other modifications that I make to my weekender bag, here are links to other posts that I talk more about that in: Karen Caves March 7, at 2: Chelsea Johnson March 7, at 2: Diane Moore March 7, at 5: Bella Wilson March 10, at 1: Courtney Pape March 12, at 9:
