Sugar & Spice Bag by ChrisW Designs

What are you most proud of? The piping elements. What advice would you give someone starting this project? It was a little difficult for me with all the piping, particularly the piping along the sides and bottom of the bag. Also, though I love the bag and how it turned out, the most difficult thing I found about this project was that the designer only leaves 1/4" seam allowance. So it's hard to pin and put the piping in when the allowance is so small and there is very little margin for error. I would love to make this bag again, but I think I will modify the pattern to allow a larger seam allowance. But overall, the pattern is well written and very easy to follow and I had a great time making this bag!

  • Moda's "Panache" fabric line with Exuberant Sprout for the outside
  • Paisley Bark on the piping
  • and Verve Sage for the lining. - I think this line has been discontinued from Moda as I purchased this from the clearance bin at my local fabric store.
