I have been searching for a strawberry bag pattern for some time. I purchased Fig Tree’s Berry Sweet Bag pattern and made one for Lily for her birthday.
Actually, I love these bags so much I made three so we could all have one!
(Notes: I lined the bags with fusible fleece. The strawberry fabric, above, is “Riley Blake - Fly A Kite: Strawberry Pink”. I was able to pick up a remnant for one dollar from Mad About Patchwork – Pam had a booth set up at the Quilts at the Creek show. She was selling some remnants that worked perfectly for my bags. The green Patty Young and Robert Kauffman fabric on the right bag below were also dollar remnants. I made three bags in about 4-5 hours, I am a slower cutter.)
I also wanted share photos of the strawberries my sister knit me for my birthday. They are so amazing. She used different shades of red so they are quite realistic. (She used the pattern on Pezdiva’s flickr stream. ) The tea towel was also a birthday gift from my sewing pal. It is one of the Vera towels from Crate and Barrel.
The strawberries have been very delicious this year. This summer, we also tried to grow our own in pots (only two berries so far :)
P.S. Random: I forgot to post a photo of Lily blowing out her candles. She had many reasons to celebrate that day, including surviving a go kart ride with her mummy who has not driven in about a decade.
