When I turned the page I saw this strip-pieced version was more my type. But you know me. I rarely like to use one fabric line for a project and I often think "the more the merrier".
I set out cutting 1 1/2" strips. I wanted a mix of fabrics to make a modern vintage touch so I borrowed some fabric from my daughter Natalie to mix with my fabric. And then this pile of many different fabrics above turned into . . .
this! I took 9 strips of fabric and after I joined them together it felt like I had made my own personal "fabric". Several of the strips are vintage feed sacks, some from Jennifer Paganelli's Flower Power and others from my stash. And after this set of strips I couldn't stop
So I blended these strips above. Eileen do you recognize some of the vintage fabric? You should! Months ago Eileen and I had a fabric swap. I hoarded them for a while but I'm getting brave.
And then I made more.
And still more. I have more strips cut out not joined yet. I'm not sure I want to make more than 1 shop hopper bag but you never know. I have been trying to think of other fun things I can make with my new "fabric".
My weekend list is overwhelming. So I better get started right now!
