Wanna see what was inside that carefully folded and taped tissue paper?
Mmmmmm. Outside Oslo home-dec weight by the talented Jessica Jones. I've been waiting for the right slightly heavier-than-quilting-weight fabric to come along for my 2-4-1 Tote pattern by Anna (Noodlehead). I prefer to make all of my bags with home-dec fabric on the outside. I find it is more fade-resistant than quilting weight cotton and the extra body looks nice on a bag, as well as holding the shape.
When Cindy posted about this gorgeous fabric a couple of weeks ago, I clicked through to the Marmalade Fabric link without passing go (well, I may have left a comment on Cindy's post that said something like "I'm heading right there to buy my own NOW!). See? That's blog sponsorship working for ya, Marmalade!
If anyone has a few spare hours hanging about this weekend, send them my way, will you? I really want to make up this bag!!
