At the beginning of November, Andrie Designs went to Quilt Market in Houston. This market is filled with industry leaders in fabric, patterns and supplies that have to do with sewing, quilting and all things fabric related. This year Lisa opted to have a booth and it was a mega success! In order to have a fully stocked booth of all of her bag patterns, she and Jane from S’more House, recruited a number of us to create beautiful bags to display. This was an incredible honour and we all had so much fun making them!
All of our hardware was supplied by Emmaline Bags or Betty Box Pleat. Two generous businesses that we would not have been able to create without! The fabric was supplied from a number of sources. I was given Andover Fabric from Sarah Golden’s Cats and Dogs line as well as Alison Glass’s Observatory line.
The Cats and Dog line was obviously a fave of mine being an animal lover! I created a Shades of Yesterday Tote and a Cleo Everyday Wallet in these fabrics. The animal prints really pop against her crosshatch prints!
Also I made sure to include some dogs on the inside of the wallet too!
For the Alison Glass prints, I made a small Roll with it Tote, a small Classic Clutch and a medium Statement Clutch! I love that I was given all little things to make. I just love small accessories!
This fabric is a batik so it was AMAZING to work with. Everything came out so crisp once pressed. I especially like how the pink and yellow POP off the black print on my Roll With It Tote. It was a personal favourite of mine!
I was so excited to make the small Classic Clutch so decided to get creative with the print placement! I’m not usually a green fan but this olive-y yellow colour looks amazing with the pink!
For my Statement Clutch, I got a little creative with the quilting on the flap rather than adding an overlay. I followed the dots along the fabric print and just LOVE how it turned out!
I’m so thankful to Lisa for this opportunity to have my creations at such a huge and important event in our industry. I know this was a massive undertaking and I’m so proud at all that she and Jane did to put this all together! Also, for trusting me to look after the digital side of things while she was away!
Did you go to quilt market? It’s a dream of mine to go some year so this was such a tease!
