Color Me collection by StudioE Fabrics. I had received it in a swap awhile back, and I'm really glad I hadn't used it yet, it's perfect for this project!
I made up the pattern of the bag as I went...it's just a fat quarter of the coloring fabric basted to quilt batting and muslin with some FMQ doodles, then sewn together with gussets and a black accent piece sewn along the top edge. When she went to bed, I quickly sewed the rest together... added a lining, strap, and button (and a magnetic snap inside to close it).
Then I decided to practice some FMQ writing, and added her name and some hearts to the strap for fun.
She was so excited to see if finished this morning and to show it off at her dance camp today! It was a wonderful way to spend time with my only niece.
p.s. Tammie is giving away two copies of my Colorblock Quilt today in her Sew Full of Summer series! Click here to enter.
