Sew with Sew Sisters

The lovely gals at Sew Sisters, a Canadian online and bricks & mortar shop in Toronto, asked me to come up with a project using one of their Kona Solids Club FQ packs. Their Kona club of 4 solids is available in fat quarters or 1/2 yards for a killer price and awesome shipping rates. It's a great way to build your solids stash and receive a colourful surprise every month!



My project was inspired by my sister and nieces, who recently took over the Demi Pointe dance shop in Charlottetown, PEI. I designed this sweet Ballet Tote adapting a versatile, bias stem applique technique by machine.  I believe this method originates from a 1998 Rodale book called "Applique Made Easy" by Carol Costello Soltys.

Head on over here to learn how you can make one. Leave a comment on the tutorial post at Sew Sisters and you could win the same fat quarter pack I used to make this tote! If you do, I'd love to see it. Please share a picture in my Poppyprint Projects Flickr group or tag me @poppyprint on Instagram!

It looks fab! (although your 'here' to head on over to doesn't have a link)

Beautiful, Krista! And perfect timing, we need a ballet and highland dancing bag here.

Oh, this is the sweetest bag!

Elsa said...

I couldn't find the link to make one.

Thanks Krista!

I love it!
Maybe it could serve as a template for a silkscreen for cotton bags for the shop in Charlottetown?
