This is too cute! It blows my mind that you can just whip something like this up!

Aw, thanks!

Very nice! The triangular bits where the strap meets the bag are a great idea. Well done you!

It's such a clever design!! I'm making another one for my quilt retreat right now and just love the cleverness of thr connector bits!

Love it! I had to feature it on our FB and Instagram page.

Aw, Thank you!  Kiss

It's so great to see you here on Craftster again, MareMare!

I love the Halloween wall quilt and I'm swooning over the bag-I love everything about it!

Aw, thank you! Good to see you too!

Thank you! It has tons of fusible fleece in it, I love the structure it gives!

Your mantel is so festive and fun. The quilt block is adorable and I love that you didn't go with a plain white for the ghost.

Thanks! I just had a small rectangle of the spiderweb fabric and wasn't sure it would be enough but I squeaked it out!!

I try to decorate our mantle for each season/holiday and that includes changing the mini quilt above it. For my Halloween mantle I decided I didn't have an appropriate mini quilt so whipped this one up! The free 12 inch block pattern is from Center Street Quilts and I added 3.5 inch borders of some OG Cotton + Steel to get it to around 18 inches.  



I wanted to get it up on the wall fast so just did a simple outline/echo (or "ghost" if you will. Haha, I'll show myself out!) line of stitching around the ghost with my walking foot for the quilting. A quick stitched binding and it was up on my wall!

My mantle all together!



This designer has a lot of great patterns,  (many free ones included) and I am definitely making the pumpkin and cat block for my Thanksgiving mini!

So I work for a quilt pattern designer but up until now I'd never made her super cute messenger bag pattern, The Chunky Wee Bag. I finally made my own on Sunday with a group of friends and I love it! This is the middle size,  the pattern has 3 sizes.



I used these adorable strawberries from Heather Ross's Trixie line, Essex Linen, a cute floral print from Violet Craft, and two different dot prints on the inside--Michael Miller Ta Dots and one from Bonnie and Camille.

I love the outside back pocket! If you make this,  that isn't included in the original pattern but is a free add-on bonus on the designer's website.



The insides:



I already have plans and supplies for 2 more, bwahaha!

It's lovely!! How big is it? If it's bigger than throw size,  it might be hard to wilt on your home machine.  I'd advise using spray baste and low loft poly cotton batting, unless you have the funds to hire it out to a long arm quilter. If you quilt it yourself, straight lines with a walking foot is a great way to go for a beginner!

Aw, it looks great! I think the fusible fleece was the problem, I used that on an early quilt and swore "never again!" Just low loft batting and basting spray and I think your next quilt would be way less frustrating!
