travel handmade, part 3

Time for some more finishes for QuiltCon. You guys, I'm so excited about this one! It has RUFFLES!

Corabelle Bag

My current purse is a bit old and worn, and I've been ready for a new one for a while now. (I can't believe it was two years old!) I'm not picky about too many things, but apparently I am picky about purses, because it took me hours to find a pattern that I really loved. I went with the Corabelle Pattern by artsy-crafty babe (and actually bought multiple patterns because they're on sale and I liked so many of them). I used the rest of my Kitchy Kitchen veggie print with some green Pearl Bracelets (lime, I think), some AMH Innocent Crush pink stripe (Mixed Signals in Summer), and a solid linen for the lining. And seriously, the ruffles make my day! The pattern was very well-written and easy to follow. The modifications I made were to add the ruffles and to leave out the tab on the top of the purse. I'm excited to make some of the other patterns I bought from her as well.

Needle Book

Next up on my list was a needle book. I'm taking a hand-stitching workshop, so I know I'm going to need a place to put my needles when they're not in use! I used the quilted needle case tutorial by Sew She Sews, and it was really fun and easy to make. I'm not sure what this cute sewing pattern outer fabric is; I bought a fat quarter of it from a local quilt shop.

Needle Book

For those interested, for the inside I used some pink Happy Mochi Yum Yum, a blue print from Central Park, grey wool felt from Joann's, a Ty Pennington print for the pocket binding, and a Michael Miller Ta Dot scrap I had for the main binding. Seriously cute, right? I love it!

Here's the outer fabric spread out. I love the scissors and thimble. Sewing fabric for a needle case - perfect. And the snap is from Cowgirl Snaps - I love that shop!
