The Lucy Bag

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo The Not-so Crazy Crazy Quilt Link to website or photo mselaineousteachessewing.blogspot.com/2012/03/crazy-quilt-block.html What are you most proud of? I did some bobbin work on the blue and brown bag. That was a ton of fun. I used one of my special feet to sew a string of pink pearls on the pink one. Then I tried prairie points on the boating bag. I grew up on Lake Huron...oh how I miss it! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't be intimidated by this. The bags are so busy that most people won't see little boo-boos.

What you will need

  • Fabric
  • embroidery floss

Q&A with Ms. Elaineous

honeybee design asked:
What a great way to use the different stiches on your machine. Beautiful projects. How big is the finished bag?
Ms. Elaineous answered:
YES! I do some freemotion, then use the decorative stitches over the seams. I've done this on pillows, too. And I sold these bags, but I think they were about 9" tall and about 11" wide.
cawcab asked:
Thanks for the pattern and tutorial.
Ms. Elaineous answered:
I'm doing this class at Sew You Can - the Not-So Crazy Quilt.
Sanspir asked:
Where can I get the pattern? I really like this one. Thanks
Ms. Elaineous answered:
Oh, sorry, I don't have a pattern - I just started sewing fabric together then made it up as I went!
Sanspir asked:
Thank you so much. I am just getting started with Craftsy and I am glad to know that you will reply to my question.
Ms. Elaineous answered:
We are supposed to get updates when members comment! It doesn't always work, so I check every week or so just in case! Have fun with Craftsy and check out those free classes!
