Fabric Tuesday

Go on over to Quilt Story to see everyone's fabric creations for Fabric Tuesday!

Here's what I got done this week:
Cosmo Bag
First bag of Amy Butler's Style Stitches Sew Along over at My Crafty Crap.

This bag took up most of my weekend. It took me a good part of a day to cut all the pieces and iron on the fusible interfacing. Constructing the bag took a couple days, and it's absolutely worth the time that it took. It's a great bag and it's going to be my bag for carrying all my sewing things when I go to quilt guild meetings. The pockets on the side are tall and skinny and hold my good scissors perfectly. The inside pockets are very large and fits my 8 1/2" square and idea book. There's plenty of room for whatever project I'm working on and all the extras I need.

My other project for the week was an apron for my boss, who is the cook at the bar/cafe where I work part time. She loves purple so when I found this fabric at the op shop in town I knew it would be perfect for her. The main body of the apron is canvas. I split each pocket (upper and lower) into three sections. The upper pocket has a section that's the perfect size for a lighter since she always seems to be losing her lighter.
This is the fourth canvas apron that I've made. It's a very easy, quick project and looks great (in my opinion). :)

Thanks for visiting!
