Last weekend I went to visit my parents in Ohio (along with my friend Laura), and we planned to have some sewing time so we could try a new project– the Jane Market Bag. I had seen these all over the internet, and it seemed like a straightforward pattern, so we decided to give it a go.
I used Joel Dewberry’s ginseng print home dec weight fabric for the side panels, and Denyse Schmidt’s county fair for the pocket and handle. I like how the heavier fabric gave the bag a little body, and I think next time I might also add some interfacing for structural support.
I also discovered that it can be tricky to photograph bags, particularly when people are holding them! I forgot to take my tripod home with me, so it was hard to get a good shot– plus my mom was trying to help by holding hers higher, right as I was taking the picture 🙂
While we were there, we stopped by Chagrin Falls, and I was really surprised to see that the falls were nearly completely frozen!
It’s likely that a bunch of that has melted by now, but it was a lot of ice!
Now I’m back to working on cutting out all the pieces for my single girl quilt. It’s a lot of tracing and cutting of small squares, but I’m still really excited to get them put together, so that is good motivation to keep me going through this project. I hope everyone is having a good weekend!
