I made a crapload of these. These are the 4 I made for my friends back home (in MN) as thank-you gifts for having Tim and me for the weekend. I’ve been using them primarily to practice new technique and get better at doing seaming.
Mostly fabrics from my mom that she got from my aunt’s boyfriend’s deceased wife’s stash (yes that is many times removed!); so some what feels like cotton-poly blend and twill (the burgundy flowers and the dark green respectively). The blue flowers are a waverly print I picked up on ebay, the light blue is a stretch twill from hancock, the lining of the blue/furry bag is the striped jersey (from the apron), the red / green bag lining is some quilting squares that were stitched together, and the fake fur was from an ikea bear cushion thing I found on the street.
my mom for (free!) fabrics, the street for its wonderful and often mysterious bounty.
