I received a package of fabric in the mail today that contained some blue starburst fabric. I’ve been waiting for it to finish my blue starburst Frankenbag lining. So after dinner I dug in an got it all done.
Thanks to Wanda at Exuberant Color for suggesting that the sunburst fabric would be a fantastic lining. It really is perfect! But it’s not easy to work with! It’s printed quite wonkily (is that even a word?) on the fabric and takes some time and effort to get the pieces cut square with the little squares aligned nicely. I think these little squares are perfect for fussy cutting. A little harder to work with in larger pieces.
But they are so fantastic!
Here’s the other side of this bag.
Ooh! Look at that little peek of the blue sunburst lining!!! I love it!
And the double pocket made from Jumble.
And my favorite detail…
I’ve gone on a little fabric buying streak the last couple of weeks. This all adds up to about 28 yards of fabric. Mostly half yards, but a few yard cuts and several a little larger.
It’s all KFC fabrics. I did purchase a few pieces of non KFC black and whites that didn’t make it into this photo.
Look at this amazing piece! And I’m wishing I had bought a larger piece of this. It’s so fantastic!
I looked at all the bags hanging on the coat rack in my guest room and here’s everything that’s still in my possession. The rest have been sold.
In addition to these are the two I’m keeping for myself. This paperweight one because I just love it and the crumb bag because it’s the first one I made and has all sorts of things wrong with it.
And now I think I might spend a couple of evenings making some blocks for my Secret Purple quilt while I think about what bag I might make next.
