It’s Nicely Sized for Busy Days!
This beautiful bag is one you’ll be happy to call your own. Sweet little houses with matching lawns are charming and refined at the same time.
Pretty floral prints in any color theme will be lovely in this bag. Choose a background to set them off.
The house blocks are paper pieced, allowing for accurate results (don’t worry – they’re simple to make). Traditional piecing is used for the rest of the bag.
Handles can be made from thin fabric tubes sewing into the top edge or go with leather handles as shown in the example. You’ll find a nice selection of handles at Etsy (try here, here and here). You’ll want a set that is about 25″ x 1/2″.
The finished bag, designed by Kristyne Czepuryk, is 17” x 11” x 3” while the house blocks are 2 1/2” x 3”.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
