If you’ve stopped by the blog in the last couple of days, you’ll have seen that I’ve taken a bit of a break from my quilting projects to sew up a new top.

I’m also working on another non-quilt project.  I’m currently in the process of making the Betty Bowler bag from Swoon Patterns. I’m really liking the pattern, and will probably pick up a couple more of their patterns soon. Ad far as this bag goes, I’m thrilled with how it looks so far. I’m making use of the Cotton+Steel fabric I picked up a month or so ago.

What are you working on right now?

      Thanks so much Renee! I hope to have the bag finished by the end of the week, so hopefully I’ll be able to share a finished bag next week.

    I’ve been meaning to make the Scout top for ages but now I will be spurred on by you – I love the idea of using a heavier fabric and it works really well.

      Thanks for stopping by Kaja! I really enjoyed making this tee, and will definitely be making more. This one is a little big, but that will make it great for layering this winter.

    Your new top looks fantastic, Andrea! Lovely work! Can’t wait to see your new bag. Looks great sew far!

      Thanks Lorna! The bag is done and will be up on the blog Monday.

    Hi Andrea, I am emailing you some photos of the “baby project” my student and I were working on. I don’t know how to upload them here so I sent them in a separate email to your “contact” address. There are 3 photos. So cute!

      Thanks so much for sharing! That teddy on a motorcycle is adorable!
