Bag Lady Week: Scalloped Dresden Bag by Amy from During Quiet Time
Today's Bag Lady is Amy, from During Quiet Time. Many of you will be familiar with her amazing handprinted fabrics that are all the rage in blog land! I first found Amy when I bought one of her lovely kokeshi doll pincushions. Then, when she made a pincushion of the quilting process, I convinced her to make a quilting process mini quilt for me. I absolutely love it, and it looks like the masses do as well because the mini quilt kits have been a popular seller in her shop. I also have been lucky enough to do a swap with Amy, and I can tell you from all of these exchanges, her attention to detail is second to none. Just take a look at what Amy has come up with now! Droooooool.......
Kristie, thank you for asking me to participate in "Bag Lady Week" (though I am a little unsure that I want to share such a title)! I would like to offer your readers a free pattern/tutorial that I devised using a scalloped edged Dresden for the bag's flap! This will be my new bag for the fall so I chose a dark brown slub linen for the exterior with some of my favorite scraps in dark brown, pale pink, celery and Cinnamon for the Dresden blades. I lined the bag with Kona Celery.
Just download the pdf and you can get started!

Just leave a comment below and Kristie will draw two names! If you'd like to visit me, I blog at During Quiet Time and sell my handprinted fabrics and patterns at my Etsy shop.
Thanks so much for joining in on the fun, Amy!
