I had the honor to make a few samples for Quilt Market for Cloud9 Fabrics this past fall. The Poolside Tote and Market Bag (pattern from my book) patterns were perfect for showcasing this beautiful fabric, plus they definitely give off that beachy casual vibe. I always love sewing samples for market because it’s such relaxing sewing. Someone else picks the fabric and patterns and all I have to do is sew. Bonus because it’s my own pattern and I get to switch to automatic mode and go go go.

Of course it’s always fun to sew with beautiful fabric, too. This is the Underwater collection by Elizabeth Olwen. I can see how this fabric collection would be so fun for beach gear, or a nursery, and of course bags!

Kind of fun side note, I was finally able to use a zipper I had hand-dyed for this Market Bag. I think I was going for a gray, but it ended up a bluish purple which ended up coordinating so nicely with this fabric! I used the organic cotton zipper from Zipit and it seemed to take the dye very nicely, but I did it quite a few years ago so I’ll be excited to try some more! And maybe indigo!!!

I managed to snap these pictures with the fall leaves just before I shipped them out to Cloud9 last fall. It was fun to have the fall foliage provide some beautiful color contrast! Looking at these colors is so fun when everything now is white!
