Tea for Two / My version

The pattern for this blog hop was designed and made by Cori Blunt at Chitter Chatter Design.


I must say that I hesitated a while before I signed for this hop. I haven´t any idea what I should make with the wonderful patterns. But it was only one week ago that I realized  so many possibilities there were to create something useful, fun and beautiful with some of the patterns.

I had no intension to stitch the cups and roses, the ladies who was speeding for the dates would be fun to stitch up in something useful.


What do you think I could use this for?


To carry my shoes for a party of course.


Here is one side of the bag


And here is the other side

Don't you think it is an awesome bag?

Some close pictures of the other side of the bag

I have used simple wax crayons for the legs and shoes. 

As you could see the bag is constructed from only one tall rectangle and then sewn together with french seams.
The technique was shown to me from a Danish quilt designer. 

It is April now and I was lucky  take the pictures in the morning as it started to rain later in the day.

Thank you Mary at Needle Mom and lovely Samm at Sew We Stitch for organizing this blog hop.

And of course Cori for your lovely design.

Now hop over to the other ladies for the day


Have a great day blog hopping
