Yesterday I told you about Kelli and I visiting Olive Juice, the quilt shop in Onalaska, WI. Today I’ll show you what we bought.
This is the room Kelli was most excited about…the findings room with buttons, zippers and accessories.
Kelli has been in this bag kick and she’s dragging me down the road with her. She wanted to make this bag….and talked me into making it too. She wants to take make it to keep her stuff in when she comes to my house to sew….or to the retreat this summer. They had a sample of the bag and it enticed her into buying it.
I thought this bag would be handy…yep…we bought that pattern too.
We ended up with both patterns. We’re pattern people. What can I say?
I ended up getting these things too…..
I told you Kelli was being a bad influence on this bag thing. I bought a bad pattern. I don’t know what I was thinking. I’ve resisted bags for so long. UGH.
I also got a key chain fob piece and a fat quarter of Kaffe striped fabric. I looked and looked for more quarter yard cuts of the Kaffe fabric but none were cut. They had half yards but I wasn’t interested in those. I wanted a few to support the leftovers I already have. I thought about grabbing a few of the bolts and get yardage cut but class was going on and I didn’t want to be disruptive as the fabrics were in the classroom. I am sure you’ve been in a quilt shop that had fabrics in the classroom and felt the same way. I know where they are if I need more and that’s okay.
Besides…I am still in the clean/organize mood so little sewing has happened.
Kelli and I were both a little frustrated as we got home and found that both of the By Annie bag patterns are part of our Craftsy Unlimited and we didn’t need to buy the patterns as we can download them from Craftsy. These bags both have video tutorials that go with them. Shucks. I’m telling you this so you don’t make the same mistake we did….oh well.
It’s a live and learn thing I guess.
Kelli got Unlimited too and has been watching some of the classes. She’s really liking the bag classes and can’t wait to get sewing.
