Summer Traverse

June 13, 2017   /   byAnna Graham  / Categories :  Feeds

Summertime! It’s only the first part of June and we’re already experiencing a heat wave here in the midwest. I hope it evens out a bit so we can enjoy being outside more. Earlier this spring I made a Traverse Bag just for summer. I knew that it would be perfect for all the daily running around we do.

This canvas is a Nani Iro print I have had in my stash for a super long time. I kept grabbing it for projects then it never really panned out, until now. I think it’s a great match for this pattern. The mini Traverse Bag just looks so summery and cute in this abstract print. I love it.

Natalie chose┬áto model this one for me. It’s kind of nice not having to be in front of the camera most of the time. And of course I love taking pictures and even more so when it’s pictures of my girls. I’m trying to find a new rhythm with blogging and business and keeping up with my kids. We’re more busy now than ever with sports and commitments so it definitely has felt challenging to keep things going on a consistent basis. I guess that’s just part of summer and the girls growing up. It’s going to be a great summer and I hope that it doesn’t fly by too quickly. I love to enjoy the slow moments here and there and all the traditional summer fun like camping, s’mores, sleepovers, canoeing and swimming.

Pattern: Traverse Bag (mini size)
Fabric: Nani Iro Mountain Views metallic from Miss Matatabi on etsy, Cloud9 Cirrus solid in shadow

Hope you’re having a fun start to summer! I do have hardware/zipper kits available for the Traverse Bag (both regular and mini sizes) plus I added a few colors yesterday a nickel/gray and antique brass/black combo.

What are you sewing? I printed off a bunch of garments to get started on including the Santa Fe top (by Hey June Patterns), I can’t wait to make one or two for yoga!
