Erin, a REALLY fun person I met through my etsy shop , previously purchased a diaper bag from me and now wanted to try the mail bag (found here: http://www.pinkchalkfabrics.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=39_75_78&products_id=3~ but in patchwork~ so here it is so far. I sent her some links which started with the Anna Griffin medallion at the top from her new line & from there Erin found great coordinates from http://hawthornethreads.com. They have this great feature in their shop where you can choose coordinates based on a color in the fabric~ it's really fun. You can also shop by color, which is great when you are looking for a tomato red like Erin! I am excited to see how it comes out. I cut each square 5" (actually did strips, then cut) & used a 1/2" seam instead of 1/4" because Erin is hard on bags! :0 The finished squares were 4.5" , then used the pattern to cut out the shape from the patchwork. Will post pics when done! What are you working on today??
