Quilted Leftover Fandango Cinch Sack

After Laura got her fresh new summer tote bag, I got started on my own new bag, since my old one has been on its last leg for some time now. You might remember THIS bag as a fun purse made using a pattern from a magazine and leftover Frolic fabric from THIS baby quilt. My new bag is also made from leftovers and my own original pattern for a fun cinch sack which is available for purchase in my Etsy shop so you can make yourself one too! The fabric is leftover from THIS quilt which just came off the long arm a few weeks ago. I had some triangles and some end pieces leftover, along with a little yardage, some fusible fleece that I pieced to fit, and the only thing I had to purchase new was the drawstring. So it's almost like getting a free bag! Right? Anyway, here it is...

The fabric is Kate Spain's Fandango line which is one of my favorites. The colors are fabulous! The triangles and half triangle end pieces went together so nicely into a rectangle, then I added some scraps of the blueish/greenish circle fabric around it to get the size I needed for the outside.

The lining is made from the extra fabric from the backing of the zig zag quilt, and the pockets were pieced from the leftover binding fabric.

The back panel of the outside is fabric leftover from piecing the backing of my first Fandango quilt, THIS Cartwheels quilt that has an awesome pieced backing with leftover pieces from the front and some yardage. Can you tell I like to use up leftovers?

So there it is, all fresh and new and as yet unused. It will be great for our summer outings since it holds a lot of stuff and leaves my hands free for summer shopping, ice cream eating and picture taking!

Happy Summer!

Happy Stitching!
