Blush Fabrics

Dana of Made Everyday was kind enough to invite me be a part of her Blush Fabrics tour! Dana's was one of the first sewing blogs I discovered years ago and I've always loved her aesthetic. I'm a huge fan of bold graphic prints and this collection does not disappoint in that department. I chose to make two projects using the Tulips print in both color ways - Blush and Copper. Copper is a perfect orangey red and it's awesome for fall/winter - such a great color. These are both super soft quilt weight fabrics but you'll also find knits and rayon in the collection.

I used the Tulips in Copper to make a crossbody style bag which is my latest bag obsession. It's basically a hacked large Double Zip Pouch. I lengthened the bottom part of the front panel, added a front divided slip pocket, and boxed the bottom corners to add depth to the bag. The strap is attached to the sides of the bag using rivets. The bag has 5 pockets in all (not counting the main compartment) which is great for keeping everything organized. The overall dimensions of the bag: 10" H | 11" W | 2.5" D.

I now have a free pattern add on to help you make your own Double Zip Crossbody bag - use this free tutorial along with your copy of the Double Zip Pouch pattern to sew one up!

I used the Peach colorway to make a zipper pouch/clutch with a few added details like piping, leather,  and wood beads to make things interesting.
