FL girl is not into Star Wars. She loves horses and the beach. A few years ago I made her a table runner with a beach and ocean theme. She loved it. Of course I can't just buy enough fabric for one project and be done with it, I had plenty left over. So I made her bag a beach and ocean theme. Check it out.
|Started with a triangle adding different fabrics as I go. Getting ready to start adding some sand to the water.|
|Same technique was used as the Star Wars bag. The center of this is mostly the 'beach' area which will be the bottom of the bag.|
|A different view. This bag is ready for quilting.|
|Almost done quilting. I did different techniques in each of the different fabrics. |
|Lots of pebbles and green ripples.|
|Quilted the lines of the seaweed fabric.|
|More blue waves, getting better.|
|Loving this machine, I am having so much fun. Thank you to my wonderful husband.|
|I asked my husband what he thought I should do with the light colored 'sand'. He thought a little larger pebble, more like rocks. I think it came out nice.|
|Found this neat fabric on clearance for the lining.|
|Turning the bag.|
|The front of the bag.|
|The back of the bag. Sorry this is not a very clear picture.|
|One blue strap, one green. The inside of the strap matches the lining.|
I managed to get this bag done in time to ship it to FL with the Christmas in Paris quilt. I hope FL girl enjoys this By the Sea bag.
