I am totally in love with this messenger bag (blogged here)! Of course the lovely bird fabric is from Kokka’s Echino collection (my latest fabric obsession) and the pattern is the “Mischievous Gnome Messenger Bag” from Sew Liberated (here).
I also love the way Meg from Sew Liberated made her bag in the Heather Ross “Gnomes” fabric. The “Gnomes” fabric from Free Spirit has been out of print for a while and sells on Etsy for almost $50 a yard! So when Heather Ross announced (here) that she would be reworking some of her most popular fabrics in new colors and textures and putting them on Spoonflower (here), I just had to get some of the “Gnomes” in plum (not sure why its not for sale on Spoonflower anymore???) quilting weight cotton!
R. fell in love with these gnomes and wants me to make her a messenger bag for Christmas…I just might do that and make mine up in one of the Echino prints (???)…decisions decisions! I had hoped to get a couple of yards of this gnome fabric to make some comfy pajama pants, but it is not soft and thin like the Free Spirit fabric (I am certainly not complaining!)
Hoping to find the time to work up a quick bag to take on our trip to D.C.!
