So, this is one of my latest bag orders. I mailed it out last week, so it should be in the hot little hands of it's new owner. Amanda wanted to have her bags with pinks, blues, brights and vivid. She wanted me to do whatever I wanted, the only stipulation was no florals. No problem, or so I thought. I really have a bunch of florals! Well, I sent some fabric combos to her and she really liked the Kaffe Fassett. SO that is what I went with. Now the thing about Kaffe Fassett is that his fabric can be a touch overwhelming. It is insanely bright and saturated. I like his fabric and I have a great deal of it, but I get scared to use it....it is just too much sometimes. Well, the good thing about the gray of the ACU is that is really tones down everything else around it. It is almost like a color vacuum, or a bit of white paint. I combined some of the fuchsia that I hand dyed, a periwinkle freckle and another Kaffe print. I love how her order turned out. It is totally colorful without being obnoxious. This is yet another order I would have happily kept for myself.
So, shall we take a peek at some of the details? I do love details.
Each of Amanda's bags has their initials quilted into them. So they are kinda sweet.
So, I hope you are all having a great run up to Christmas! I shall be here sewing if you need me.
