Last sunday I met with Tacha and Aylin for a sewing day. We all wanted to test the new Camp Stitchalot Bag pattern by Sewsweetness. It is a perfect bag for carrying all your sewing stuff around every ruler, a cutting mat, patterns and fabric etc, everything fits into this practical bag. It is not just so handy, no it is so damned cute. We all chose wonderful fabrics for it, at the end of this post you can see a photo of all our versions.
But back to sunday:
We met early. We wanted to make this bag (The Camp Stichalot Bag) within this day. And we did. Finally. And I have to say, it took a long time (or was it the chatting, the Pizza and Cake eating???)
BUT EVERY CUT, EVERY SWEARWORD, EVERY MINUTE AND EVERY EFFORT WAS WORTH IT!!!
This bag is not just so practical, with all its pockets, see these see through pockets, they are so incredibly handy, its not just so big to put all your rulers, cutting mats and of course your projects in it; No it also is so damned pretty. I so love the three versions of it that we made, but I adore (!!!) mine, made from Denyse Schmidts Greenfield Hill fabrics. I had these lying around for a while now, and when I read the fabric requirements for the bag, one day before we wanted to meet, I thought "oh well I don´t have these large pieces of fabric". So I decided to make it even more patchworky.
I had a charmpack from the line, so I whipped one piece together, for the outer pocket and for the rest I used the different fabrics which match so perfect together.
All of us three decided on some changes here and there. For example I didn´t want to have so many plastic pockets, so I reduced from four to two.
And there is still enough room for everything.
So have a look and absolutely enjoy what you are seeing. You can make one yourself. Sarah is going to release the Camp Stitchalot Bag Pattern today or tomorrow. I absolutely can recommend it.See Aylins pretty version here.
