Some time back Stephanie at Rummage asked me to test a new bag design for her. Of course I said yes as soon as I saw it! I knew I had the perfect fabric, too - something I had bought while we were in Portland together in the Spring of 2013, Tim Holtz's Eclectic Elements.
Here is Stephanie's new design, AJ - which is named for the first initials of her two children, Allison and James. This design goes together very fast with just 6 fat quarters. How many of us have at least 6 fat quarters lying around our sewing rooms? (I'm still working on the photo editing in my new iMac, so the colors may be a bit off.) I love the "Steampunk" fabric and used a few of Mr. Squash's goodies as props. Stephanie even sent me a pair of earrings with a Steampunk style to go with the bag!
This is the back. Such fun and versatile fabric! You can find the PDF patter HERE on the Connecting Threads website and they also have a kitted version of it HERE. Do visit Stephanie over at Rummage and have a look at two version of the bag she made. You can also see her "Confetti" quilt pattern that Connection Threads has kitted as well.
