Barkcloth Bags

April 30, 2017   /   bySara Lawson  / Categories :  Feeds

I made a couple of bags from the new barkcloth fabrics from Hoffman Fabrics. I have been really into the Me+You batiks, and their creator, Aaron Hoffman, is an accomplished surfer. When I received these fabrics in the mail to make the samples, I searched on some online surf and skateboarding shops to get some inspiration for what project I would make with them.

I decided to make a Cumberland Backpack from the dark floral barkcloth fabric. Because of the larger weave of the barkcloth fabrics, I interfaced them with Pellon Shape Flex before attaching to foam interfacing. This backpack is the large size (there is a smaller version also included in the pattern).

I used a small bit of Fawn cork fabric from my shop for the sides of the front pocket. You can see all of my available colors and designs of cork fabric here. I thought the cork paired nicely with the vibe of the fabric. This backpack was reeaallly hard to send off – it’s probably one of my top 10 favorite things I’ve ever made. It’s just so cool.

I also made a Coalition Bag in duffle size with a second piece of Hoffman barkcloth. This leaf print is huge, so the Coalition seemed like the best choice. Again, I used Fawn cork for the accents and handles. This is a great gender-neutral bag (or I could see someone using this bag for a trip to Hawaii for sure!).

What did you think of these bags? I hope you liked them! Ask at your local quilt shop for the Hoffman barkcloth fabrics!
