Mother's Day Contest: Music Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Installing the handles was a real challenge but I am most proud of how the fabrics and design I choose worked out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun!

What you will need

  • I created the fabric using techniques from the Stitch & Slash class (awesome class by the way). My wife is a pianist so I decided to use the notes fabric on the background and her favorite color (orange). I used the black and white fabrics in between because I thought they would nicely frame the musical fabric. I hope my wife likes it...

Carol Ann Waugh asked:
Wow. This bag makes me re-think my favorite color from lime green to orange! Nice!
Papo Correa answered:
Who said anything about a single favorite color? ;) Just ask my kids and they both will give you an endless list of their favorite color Jajajaja and they get that from their mother who changes her favorite color every day (from orange to lime green). So if I say orange is her favorite color, I am right and if I say green is her favorite I am also right. Thank you for such a wonderful class! I have truely enjoy it.
