Fat Quarter Purse Tutorial
My first Spoonflower fat quarter arrived today! I was really pleased that my first fabric turned out really lovely. I didn't have any problems with color, and the quality of the fabric is very nice.
They recommend you order swatches before you buy a lot of fabric, but I hated to have to wait all that time to see my fabric, and then only have a swatch - so I went with a fat quarter. In the meantime, I tried to figure out what to do with my first self-designed fabric, and I came up with a purse pattern that uses precisely one fat quarter. It's a sling purse, with zipper, lining, and an adjustable strap.
So, I made my pattern into a little pdf tutorial (another first for me!) for any of you wondering what to do with your fat quarters. The tutorial is now available for a small fee in my etsy shop.
Update - the pattern has been reformatted to a four page pdf, so it prints nicely on regular paper.
Made one? I'd love to see: Add it to the wewilsons pattern pool.
