& it sure is.

I was so excited to receive  a charm pack of Lotta Jansdotter’s soon to be released fabric line ‘Bella‘ from the lovely folks at Windham

I made a couple of drawstring bags (in custom sizes using my fave drawstring bag pattern) , mixing in some solids, moda crossweave & other scraps from the stash that tied in nicely with Bella including some of Lotta’s first line Echo & even a bit of upcycled shirt. I lined them with grey & white stripey seersucker from the charity shop.

The coral is so pretty with the teal & grey.

& I couldn’t resist adding a little stitching ( I simply traced the design from the fabric, enlarged it, then traced it on to solid fabric to stitch over)

I don’t use a lot of yellow but really like this bold, old gold (with an almost greenish tint) colour,  especially with that scrummy vibrant blue!

& this one got the stitchy treatment too. That bird design is just so cute!

Bella will be on the shelves at a fabric store near you in August….yippee!  In the meantime more sneak peeks of Bella have been popping up here, here, here, here & here  :)
