Okay, here is my second attempt. I like the size, I like the construction, and the fabric is pretty appealing to me. You may remember the little quilt I made from this fabric (see here)?
Here's a close up of the quilting. It is a PERFECT opportunity to practice machine quilting before tackling a larger project!
This bag is two sided, which I also LOVE! The fabric from IKEA is a very large scale fabric, so I can use the same fabric and get a different motif for the back.
And now that I am happy with the prototypes, all that is left is trying to decide how to put my blog name on the bag. Something like this?
In addition to having a very useful and reusable grocery bag... I want to encourage a few new viewers to my blog each time I go shopping. However, this one was done in photoshop. Now I need to do something to apply the text to the real thing....I will have to get back to you on this one, but am open to your ideas!! Thanks for stopping by!
