Gorgeous fabrics. Amazing texture. Saturated colors.
When I saw the navy print in Story, I knew I wanted to make a bag, giving it plenty of space to show off the color, design and texture in a large, uninterrupted cut.
The pattern I used is actually the “extra credit” version of the Pleated Purse in my book, School of Sewing. I think after it is done making the rounds for Carrie, her mom has requested to keep it. I can’t think of a better home for it than Carrie’s sweet mother!
Story arrives in shops in September (ask your local shop to order it!), but you can get your hands on some now if you’re lucky! Carrie is giving away some great stuff this week! Three winners will each receive a fat quarter bundle of Story and a copy of Carrie’s book, The Little Spark. To enter, head over to her blog and leave a comment on this post.
