Pattern Parcel #7 // Daphne Bag

November 20, 2014

Hi friends, today I am sharing my version of the Daphne Bag a brand new bag pattern by Clover & Violet! This is my second Clover & Violet bag, and I chose to make another one because I love the ease of their instructions. I am still somewhat new to bag making so the easier the better and I love how easy it is to make this pattern your own by going with the patchwork option or keeping it as a solid piece of fabric.

For my fabrics I chose to use a fun Kokka fabric I have had in my stash for a while paired with a solid black lining and pleather as the bag bottom and accent on the handle. I also added some fun pleather hexies to the bag front to jazz up the red space that felt a little sparse. I think the hexagons look fun with all of the crazy triangle patterns going on as well.

How Pattern Parcel Works:

Here at Perfect Pattern Parcel, we believe in supporting independent pattern designers. It’s our opinion that indie patterns are just, well, better than big box patterns, and we’re pretty sure our customers think so too. So, we allow customers to show their support in naming their own price for each Parcel.  We also encourage customers to allocate part of their Parcel price to the charity Donorschoose.org in order to help classrooms in need. Pattern Parcel donates all profits after expenses from Parcel sales to the charity as well. Its our goal to raise over $20,000 for Donors Choose this year.

Quilt Market – Fall 2014 Wrap-up

November 13, 2014

Hi friends,

Today I am sharing a wrap-up of the remaining Fall Quilt Market photos that I took. Thank you for all of your fun comments and I hope that you have enjoyed the tour as I was trying to make it feel like you were there getting to see all of these amazing new lines and work created by so many talented people in person! I was very fortunate to be able to attend the market this year, credentials are tougher and it can be quite an expensive journey. Luckily I can non-rev flying there so that makes a big difference and also having online friends that are kind enough to split hotel rooms was very very helpful as well. It is amazing with this sewing community how down to earth everyone is. People you look up to on a daily basis are so real to meet in person – no matter how terrified you thought you would be to walk up and chat face to face. Thank you again to everyone who allowed me to wander around their booths taking awkward photos, I love that I am able to share your talent with all of my readers.
