I made my most recent Sew Together Bag for the Auction for Eleni, an Instagram event (IG: @auctionforeleni) that will occur this weekend, on March 14 and 15, to support Rachel’s little one. I chose color-saturated fabrics from Rae Hoekstra’s Lotus Pond line for this project.
If you’re in the market for a Sew Together Bag, I think my pictures tell the story best:
|This bag measures 13.5" long (with handles), 4.5" tall, and 5" deep.|
|The interior contains three zippered compartments and four open compartments. It features more selections from Lotus Pond.|
|Each of the three zippered compartments is lined with this pale pink fabric from Lotus Pond.|
Rachel Hauser has given so much to the quilting community—with her blog, her classes, her patterns. I’ll leave it to her to fill you in on the challenges Eleni is facing. (See posts here, here, and here.) If you would like to show your support, check out the Auction for Eleni. In addition to handmade items and quilts, there are many bundles of fabric, plus special listings for longarm services and more.
Also: If the auction isn’t your thing, Jodi, at Tales of Cloth (formerly Tickle and Hide), is collecting hexie flowers for a quilt for Eleni.
This project is also my submission for Le Challenge’s latest theme—passion or obsession. I’ve tackled five of these bags and their 20 zippers (!), so I think it’s fair to say that I’m obsessed with the Sew Together pattern.
