recent weekend makings.

It’s been fun slipping in a few non-market related items over the last few weekends.

The first was a camera strap for my sister and her brand new camera.

Then there was a Super Tote.

Except I added cording to the entire front. (Would have added to the back too but ran out…)

Pleated gusset is a sweet lil detail.

Loving the elast-i-fied inside pockets. They will hold a TON.

Great pattern.

And finally some wiksten tanks that I’d been dying to make. These suckers go together nice and fast–I whipped out 2 in one day.

First with tsuru.

Then with some architextures.

Finally a new purse.

I used this noodlehead pattern and really enjoyed it. The fabrics are from architextures with the exception of the strap and flap detail. Those are a Philip Jacob feather print.

 

Using my gray ledger print on the bias has been really fun–especially for some thick cording.

My new go-to label system.

Hardware (from the buckle guy) that I just happened to have on hand. Love it when that happens.

Instead of using a magnet or velcro, I decided to go binder-style and use 2 vintage buttons from my stash with some braided embroidery floss.

Architextures tote for Laurie.

Quilt Market has always been a fun adventure, and this last time was especially nice because my sister Laurie came along to help. To show her some gratitude and also make sure she was well-equipped and festive for the weekend, I made for her an architextures tote bag.

The design itself was fairly simple. To create the outside panels, I used blocks from my herringbone pattern, some Kona teal blue to frame the blocks, and big chunks of the blue trees. I sewed those together, adding box corners at the bottom and some straps at the top. For the inside I used the green topo and a selvage label with tree markings on the pocket.

It just so happens that my sister is a landscape architect, so this was not only a fitting gift for toting around Quilt Market, but it’s also apparently been a big hit in her office.
