wrap it up bag

by Nova on March 11, 2013

I whipped myself up a new ‘wrap it up bag‘ the other afternoon.  I haven’t made one of these for a while & it is such a great pattern & a great bag.

I’m on a bit of a ‘try & use up what you’ve got in the stash ‘ kick at the moment so patched together some favourite stashed  pieces of Echino to make up the size required for the pattern pieces. The linen/cotton blend of course makes for a bulkier wrapped up bag then regular quilting cotton would,  but it still wraps up really easily & snaps shut well within the size given in the pattern.

I love the fabrics that you used. Your bag is so pretty… I think I want to make me one.

Beautiful! I bought that pattern ages ago and still haven’t got round to making it. You’re putting me in the mood to make one :)

Oooh, pretty in the Echino! I have a pile of bags in my future to use up some stash. When I have a spare moment. Ha ;o)

oh wow… it’s perfect! i really admire the fact that you can actually use your Echino too – i’m a ‘fraidy cat & can only hoard it!

fresh fabrics! I didn’t try the pattern but maybe I’ll experiment a little on my own before buying it. We’ll see how it goes.

love this Nova, so much. Those fabrics are perfect for that bag! I’m so with ya on the ‘try to use what I’ve got’ stuff!! It’s kind of fun to see the piles shrinking!

I have been meaning to make one of these bags for ages and seeing yours has reminded and inspired me to finally get it done!

What a great little bag and cool pattern! I like it all the more for the pieced-together look.
