Margo Dressed in Fandango by Moda

Lazies, Continuing on with my Margo adventures this week, I had a chance to dress Margo Handbag (LGD127) in the ‘Fandango’ line from Moda and I love how she turned out. I worked with the green/yellow/brown colorway for both bags. Click on any of the images to enlarge.

A quick peek inside reveals more fabric fun.

The geometric style of the feature fabric plays well with this design. For the Margo below, I fussy cut the main fabric and centered the motif. The line of stitching down the front suggests that I matched fabric patterns much like you do with wallpaper seams – but I didn’t. This line of stitching separates the two front pockets so your good stuff stays where it should. Looks like I worked hard (I didn’t), but that’s just what we’ll let everyone believe!

Love the lining fabric and goldenrod zipper together.

More fun in the studio for me today. Have a wonderful day everyone.

Enjoy!
Joan

    I really like this bag’s looks. I don’t have the pattern yet. Can you tell me if the vertical seam down the middle front of Margo’s pocket is a design feature or a construction feature? I mean, if I DIDN’T put the seam there would the bag construction suffer or would there simply be one big pocket with no division? I have a design detail I would like to put there, at least it’s in my mind’s eye!

    Joan, You are driving me crazy with the endless possibilities with the new Margo bag. I love it, now all I have to do it decide which of my (3 rooms of fabric) I should start with. This is a real beauty……………you go girl! Jean

    Those are two awesome bags! I just cut mine out in “Eclipse” designed for Exclusively Quilters. Hopefully I’ll have it done by this weekend. This one is a yellow/gray colorway.

    Harriet-
    I think the middle line is a design thing, based on what Joan said before about how it’s sewn. Of course, now I want to know what your design idea is too.

    Joan-
    I like the 1st purse you showed in the Fandango line the best. My head is just whirling with all the fabric possibilities. I already ordered the Marcus orange & pink fabrics. Can’t wait for it to arrive.
    What fun!

    I am impatiently waiting for my pattern to arrive :)
    I love, love those fabrics you used in the two bags…absolutely stunning! I think I must have all these fabrics, because I can’t decide which ones I like best!

    I love these. I am new to this site. Can I get the patterns also from the stores that
    you have listed. Otherwise would you tell me where I may purchase them.
    Thanks, so much.
