This is one of the fabrics from Michael Miller that I’ve been sewing with lately. It’s a heavyweight cotton oxford that just says classy to me. It’s called Dandy Damask. I’ve seen it in a quilt-weight cotton at my quilt shop as well. First up, a wall pocket.
Some dandy office accessories. Modpodged, of course.
Next up, a Seamstress Apron.
And lastly, a diaper bag.
I didn’t anticipate how totally different this bag looks with all one fabric. But the big prints are great for centering on this bag. I also have started sewing lines on my straps. It gives them more texture, or umph or something.
A few people have asked if the diaper bag pattern would be good for a beginner. The answer is, I don’t really know. It certainly isn’t rocket science, but there are a lot of pieces to keep track of. One customer thanked me for a bag that she was able to whip up in one evening. I was in awe. This bag consistently takes me 4 hours at least – longer if I have children running around. Any thoughts from those of you who have made it?
