Helen’s Garden has started shipping to stores!!!
To provide an initial bit of sewing inspiration, I wanted to feature these gorgeous bags that Jennifer Ladd so creatively whipped up for me for my Quilt Market booth.
Helen’s Garden offers so many colour and pattern matching possibilities, that with just a few fat quarters of fabric, some stiff fabric interfacing, and some lovely wooden handles (a Google search brings up many possibilities), one could create a stylish gift.
With some careful cutting, patterns can almost seamlessly align as above. Or one could go all out featuring one eye-catching print like the Dahlia Medallion (I could not come to part with this one, so it is an early Christmas present to myself).
The interiors of Jennifer’s bags are as artfully done as the exteriors. She uses a contrasting fabric as lining, in this case Enchanted in cream, and even a little pocket in yet another fabric, Pollen.
If you are loving these pretty purses as much as I am, and are not quite so craftily inclined as to try creating one for yourself, Jennifer should soon have these and possibly others made of Helen’s Garden fabrics available in her Etsy shop.
