I had a lot of fun in my sewing room making some little treats for my DD recently. In addition to her teaching career, she has recently joined with Stella and Dot as an Independent Stylist. I asked her to email me a jpg of the logo so I could make her a few items to use when she does her trunk shows.
Right away I knew I wanted to make her a little clutch and a business card holder. I have made both items many times...kind of my "go to" projects for family and friends. I use my zippered clutch every day to hold my quilting tools. It usually sits by my sewing machine and holds everything and more-rotary cutters, special rulers, seam rippers, sometimes a few chocolates, and of course those perfect-sized scissors!
I printed the company's logo onto June Tailor fabric sheets and started searching through my teals for the perfect fabrics to match the little ampersand!
Once I found what I wanted, I cut the squares and arranged them so I wouldn't have the same print beside another. The front...
and the back...
The bag is lined with one of the coordinating fabrics I used on the outside but I forgot to take pictures.
The colour in my pictures seems a little off, so here is the picture DD took...she was pleased and so am I...always nice when gifts are appreciated! Guess there is a little advertising here, but if I covered the logo, the bags wouldn't have been so cute!
I still have some fabric sheets with the logo printed off so am going to make her an iPad case next. I see a few patterns on line. Do you have any recommendations?
The pattern for the clutch is in the Spring 2011 edition of Quilts and more. See it in the top right-hand corner?
The business card holder is a Little Wallet pattern I purchased here from Quilt Taffy.
Thanks for coming by. It's a great day for quilting!
