Another mail sack!

I was in a bit of a funk the other day and wanted to make something that would cheer me up.  What to do?  How about cut into some of your favorite fabric and make yourself a bag you know you love??  Done.

Echino Mail Sack

Those of you who have been reading my blog for awhile know that I love love love the Mail Sack pattern from Pink Chalk Studios (not to mention how inspirational Kathy’s blog is!) so I figured I’d make yet another. I make the mini version so it’s more handbag-y than tote-y.

Can’t go wrong with this amazing Migratory Birds Echino fabric! I’d been holding off cutting into my little half yard of it, but making myself something with it sure did brighten my day. Sometimes you just need to take the dive and cut into the precious fabric!

Hope that you all have wonderful weekends!

So many solids. arrow-right

    Now that’s a way to cheer yourself up! I really like the birds against the linen background.

    I know how hard it is to cut into something so precious but isn’t it rewarding when your project turns out just like you envisioned? Beautiful bag, I know you’ll enjoy it. :)

    Kathy gifted me this pattern and I need to get it done! Was hoping I could do it before Sew Expo and run into her!
