Wool Quilt Bag

"Learn to use other’s success as inspiration. Instead of focusing on our failure, we can see their achievement as something to motivate us ~ Twitter "



This is the continuation from my previous Post about the Kits! This wool quilt bag I finished in March. I bought the kits from Country Quilt Market shop in Tokyo.





This patchwork wool bag came with a pre cut wool squares of different textures. The kit didn't include the batting or interfacing and lining. So you have to figure it out yourself. I use a lightweight fusible and add batting for this tote bag.



Since there was no instructions for the lining, I just made it up myself. I added slip pocket and zipper pocket. I thought of using snap button closure as per the pattern but decided to go with zipper. 


Here I learned how to do the bottom and so glad that it lined up beautifully! Working with wool and different textures and weight of fabrics was a challenge. Most of Japanese quilt bags are hand quilted and I was too excited to finish this one. So, I only did quilt in the ditch, just to be on the safe side :D.


And that's me with the bag when I went to Shillong with my SIL in March! 
Now it's my fave tote bag! Nothing like carrying handmade bag ^_^.

What about you? Do you like to buy kits? 

Thank you for stopping by,

Have a nice day,

Elvira
