Sew and Tell….Rebecca’s Beatle Bag

Rebecca's Beatle BagRebecca came into the store with her Beatle Bag. This is a really neat little sewing tote which could easily be used for make-up, travel, jewellery, or craft storage. She used North Woods fabric by Kate Spain and it is really lovely. ¬†Have a look inside at all the pockets and organization features…Rebecca's Beatle Bag - insideRebecca's Beatle Bag - inside 2

Rebecca made a few small changes from the original pattern to suit her personal needs which is a great benefit to sewing your own projects.

The Beatle Bag pattern comes with 4 plastic inserts and more can be ordered separately so you can make another for a friend like Rebecca is currently doing.

Thank you Rebecca for sharing you project with us!


Sew and Tell….Denise


For today’s Sew and Tell we have another Judy Niemeyer quilt. Denise brought in her finished Prismatic Star which she started when she took a Judy Niemeyer class taught by Maureen Wood here in Chilliwack in the Fall of 2015.

She use lovely shades reminiscent of emeralds and amethysts and sapphires which really stand out on the black “leading” and tanzanite coloured background. The quilting is incredible and was done by Rhonda Kopp of Quilt Munchies in Kamloops, BC.
