Fiesta Bag - Options

Are you inspired by all of the great fabrics that we have available to us? I am! Last week, I had a request from Portsmouth Fabric Company (located in Portsmouth, NH) to adapt my Fiesta Bag pattern to Home Dec weight canvas. (This is from Amy Butler's August Fields collection). It made a great go-to-market bag! If you have this pattern and some leftover slipcover or curtain fabric - go to town!

Because we used the home dec weight fabric, there was no quilting required and the handles were made without a stiffener inside them. I also didn't bind any edges, just folded and topstitched.

This is the sample at Portsmouth Fabric - if you are in the area, stop by - they are located at 112 Penhallow Street. You will love their selection of funky fabrics!

Happy Sewing!
