Don'tcallmebecky is putting idea books to use.

Rebekah of Dontcallmebecky is making a point to utilize some of the projects in her craft books that don't get used as much they should! I thought this was a great opportunity for me to do the same~I had been wanting to make something from Patchwork Style for a loong time. Thank you Rebekah for giving me the kick in the pants I needed. I just finished it about an hour ago so photographing it was kind of a pain since the sun was going down.... You can bet that you will be seeing a lot of this grid style patchwork from me...I am totally in love with it!


I couldn't find any suspender clips {I don't know what they're really called} like Suzuko Koseki uses in her book. Instead I turned this into a cross-body bag with woodgrain fabric straps.




You all still have time to enter Rebekah's giveaway and leave your name and project in her Mr.Linky! She's giving away a bag from Heather Ross' Weekend Sewing book and it's super cute...

Ms. E:)Hello! Great bag! That grid style is very cool your right:)Probably addicting too. I have the Japanese patchwork style book original. Can't read a word of it!:):) Dang! I too have a few of these books, for like 2 yrs! and still haven't tried any myself. Sure are great too look at though..HA! I see now some are out in English. Might have to "rebuy" them:) Over all though I see your style in there :) Very sharp! ;)laura

so so cool! My previous favorite of design was the yellow one by wee wonderfuls, but now I am totally smitten with your linen version. I definitely want to make one of these. It's perfect!

It's so pretty!

I think I need a kick in the pants! Can't seem to get out of this non-sewing funk.

I love your patchwork bag! So cute and different than the "usual" patchwork style.
