Show Off Saturday… the Swoon Sheena I made for Quilt Market!

By the time you read this I will be at Quilt Market!!! I feel giddy just writing that. As you have probably guessed, this blogger wrote the Show Off Saturday early this week so she could enjoy the biggest fabric and quilt show of the year. 

And this is the new bag that I made earlier in the week to take with me: The Sheena Hobo Bag from Swoon Patterns. I love this design. I think it’s beautiful yet casual and so on trend. There are pockets on the inside plus zipper pockets on the outside that are both functional and eye catching.

I love the adjustable strap too. I may never use it cross-body style, but I think the detail makes the bag look more professional.

These are some of my favorite Cotton + Steel cotton/linen canvas prints that I bought at Quilt Market last year. They are Tokyo Train Ride by Sarah Watts and Tile Aqua by Alexia Marcelle Abegg.

Mixing prints on this bag turned out even better than I anticipated because both prints get lots of attention – when I walk the aqua is staring right at people, and when they look at the bag from the front they see the trains that I fussy-cut diagonally. 

Okay, so I really fussy cut the whole exterior. Look how cute the bottom turned out!

And now it’s your turn to show off… what have you been sewing up? Did you make a new purse for Purse Palooza 2015??? Even though I didn’t sew this bag because of Purse Palooza, the timing of it was perfect!

So, what have you been sewing up this week? Did you make something with one of my free sewing tutorials or patterns? I would love to see! Tag me on Instagram @sewcanshe.
