The bags have it -- One Pattern, Different Fabrics

Fabrics change the look of everything. If your den needs refreshed, simply sew up some pillows in brightly colored fabrics. Don't like that skirt in gray? Make your own out of fabric that speaks to you and add a bit of confidence to your walk.

The ladies at the Original Sewing & Quilt Expo, producers of high-qaulity sewing and quilting consumer shows, took the plunge and decided to dust off their sewing machines, engage with some beautiful Rowan and FreeSpirit fabrics and a fun Kwik Sew pattern, Metro bag 3805.

The results are as unique as the ladies themselves. Best part, one of the creators had not sewn in quite some time. Making the bag, she says has got her wondering. How many of us have the skill to sew, used to have mutliple projects in the works but somehow sewing has lapsed in our memories. Great fabric and nicely designed patterns are a source of inspiration . . . and a bit of comraderie sure does help.

Why not challenge yourself and your friends to take fabric, thread and a pattern or two, and compare the results. Not only will you end up with a great new bag, outfit or quilt, but you'll have great fun in the process!

I love seeing the purse in different fabrics - it helps seeing how different each one looks - helps my imagination!
