Yup. I Went With Animals

Last night I was thinking I would go with animals for my next project. But these are not the animals I had in mind.

Here’s what I’m calling the front.

I just love that Lurel Burch dog print fabric.

And this is the back..

I actually found the fabric I was thinking about using, but I didn’t love it. So I decided to go with this instead.

I got two panels made, sandwiched, and quilted.

Here’s the other side.

I was so tired after work tonight. What a week! But I wanted to go with my enthusiasm to make something.

I just love seeing these pieces as I’m working on them.

I’m thinking I’ll use this colorful fabric for the lining. I’ll take a closer look tomorrow when i’m fresher and have some good light.

I bought that piece of fabric a good number of years ago and had no plan for it. So I think this is as good a project as any. I think I have at least a yard of it.

Here’s both panels quilted and ready to be assembled. I think I’ll include a zipper placket and two pockets on the interior.

Short post tonight. It’s all I can do to keep my eyes open!

I’ll finish up this bag tomorrow after work. I’m going to force myself to put the zipper placket in the bag when the lining is at the right stage.

  1. Ooooh, love the lining fabric, that is perfect! I thought you were going to use the cute Timna animal blocks, they would all be great bags. I haven’t seen a ho-hum bag from anyone yet! 🥰

    1. It’s been so long since I’ve actually been in a fabric store that my fabric purchases have been somewhat limited. I’m thinking I should poke around online and see what’s out there that I’m not seeing in stores.


  3. Anne, you never cease to amaze me! Your choice of Laurel Burch fabric jogged my memory so I’m going to dig out my pieces and use them At my age I need constant inspiration to get anything accomplished. You provide that for me!!! Thank you!

    1. It’s always nice to dig into your stash to remember what’s there. I always find fabrics that I have completely forgotten about. And fabrics that make me wonder why I ever bought them!


  4. Love all your posts. You are very prolific creating your frakenbags. Love your color splash on all your creations. Always fun to hear of your adventures with the boys.

    1. It’s Wilmington Paradise Falls Scallop Multi. I’m not finding much in the way of buying options online. I’m wondering if it’s out of print. I’ve had this for at least four years.


      1. Thanks so much for the information on the lining. Love the finished bag. I have made 2 bags and can’t wait to make more! Thanks for the pattern too.
