Welcome! This is the very first day of the Hello, Ollie blog tour!, hosted by Art Gallery Fabrics designer Bonnie Christine, and I'm sharing a project I made for her booth at Spring Quilt Market.
Bonnie's booth was one of my favorites from Market. So pretty, nature-inspired, and inviting!
See all of the fabrics in the Hello, Ollie collection, available in shops now!
I was so excited when Bonnie asked me to sew something with her beautiful fabrics, and I had the perfect project in mind. The project I made is from my book On the Go Bags, co-authored with Janelle MacKay. I can't stop sewing this bag... I've made four of them!
This is the "Tablet Shoulder Bag" designed by Sara Lawson. Even if you don't use it for a tablet, iPad or Kindle, you can really use it as a great everyday purse! I love how this butterfly print pairs with the polka dots on the flap. I chose an eyelash print for the strap, but I also pieced some polka dot fabric together.
Here's a peek at the lining! Look at this fun print...one of my favorites in the collection. If you decide to make this Tablet Shoulder Bag, it's great for confident beginners and doesn't take too long to sew. I've made several of them!
Thanks so much to Bonnie Christine for inviting me to be a part of her fabric tour. If you love soft, dreamy colors and fun prints for quilts, bags, clothing and more, follow along with the rest of the blog hop for more inspiration!
