Playing with Patchwork

Written by , Posted in patchwork, quilting, zakka

I have no idea why it took me so long to discover ‘patchwork’. I’m lovin’ it!

I am not sure if I developed this passion for patchwork because it involves smaller bits of fabric or because of the quilted appearance. Either way, I know it will cost me less in fabric purchases because you don’t need a lot of fabric to create most anything using the patchwork process.
So to date, I have created iPad sleeves:

I completed this iPad friendly shoulder bag this morning. This one took a bit more time but so lovin’ the result:
