Good Morning and Happy Friday!!
Did you know that September is craft book month over at craftbuds.com .
Don't let those craft books sit on your shelf and collect dust! We want to see what you've been making. That’s why Craft Buds has lined up a list of fabulous bloggers who will be showing off their projects made from craft books, all month long!
I choose Patchwork Please by:: Ayumi Takahashi
It took me a long while to choose just one project. I spent many hours oohing and ahhing over all the cuteness in this book. I finally settled on the Triangle patchwork box pouch.
I love The mini quilting process of this bag. It gave me the warm feeling of piecing a quilt with instant gratification. The box is assembled from the exterior first and then the lining is hand sewn in.
I shared this photos on Instagram yesterday and wonder that maybe a very strong sewing glue could be used to attach the lining (like liquid stitch) for those of you that do not like to hand sew.
The most fun part about this bag besides watching it come together is choosing all the pretty fabrics an embellishments she adds not only in this project but many of them throughout the book. I encourage you to check out the reviews on Amazon and buy it, or head to your local library to see for yourself. Such amazing goodness throughout!
