Ukulele Market bag

So I finally made the Jane Market Bag for Amber aka One Shabby Chick. I used fusible Decor Bond so the bag will stand on it's own and has more weight to it and I also make the straps 6" longer than the pattern tells you to make them.

I had asked Amber if she wanted to do our own little swap since I really wanted one of her word pillows, remember? Well I finished it up the other day and mailed it today so Amber should have it in a couple of days. Lucky for her Penelope didn't keep it, she wanted to.

P wanted it - 248:365

On another note I signed up for the 6th round of The Pillow Talk swap, I still have not missed a round yet! This is the mosaic that I made to help my partner out.

Pillow Talk Swap 6

I really need a pillow for my tv room since I have only been able to sew a couple of them for the couches and I want more. I really want some red in the pillow since that is the stand out color in the tv room but I do love scrappy. Squares, spiderwebs, wonky maverick stars are some of my favorites. I am loving a little bit on the text black & white prints that are out there now as long as it is a small amount. My house does have alot of black in it. I love quilted pillows, pillows with binding and I do think zippers are the best way to go since it keep the pillow form nice and snug. I am just putting this out there please don't feel that you have to do these things to me pillows are the best!!! I will love just about anything :)

Also the green & grey picture in the mosaic I added since my living room can totally use a pillow there too and that room is mainly green with some black & white so a white solid or grey would be great along with the green.

Also if you want another option my sewing room has a bed and can always use colorful pillows. Anything would go in this room.

I hope that little bit helps out my partner! I am excited to start stalking my partner and making something that they will love.

Loving the wonky log cabin on the front of the bag, I've been trying this tonight for my very first bee blocks, which was ever so slightly headache inducing at the end! Giggling at the photo of your daughter with said bag too :oD

The Decor Bond does a nice job of stiffening th bag Darci. I must give it a try. Looks terrific! I wonder what pillow you will receive?
