We've been thinking inside the box here at the shop, you know, sew to speak. Our staff has been busy sewing up some fun boxy bags!
While there are a lot of patterns out there for boxed bags, we really liked this tutorial from So Chick. With another round of Sewing Together under way, a number of the girls gravitated immediately to our own Hawthorne Threads exclusive fabrics!
Here are a couple Bengal bags. Our Donna jumped at the chance to show off our medium sized tiger head from the Bengal Panel. And I love subtle use of the Cascading Border print in Rachael's boxed bag.
As you can see, this project is great for allover designs as well as for fussy cutting specific motifs.
And since she couldn't resist those happy Narwhals, Stephanie whipped another one in our brand new Fair Isle fabric! If the weather outside is frightful, it's mighty delightful to sew up some of these indoors! We're snowed in here in Upstate New York and my daughter and I are ready to go with hot cocoa in hand!
