Margo Handbag Dressed in Poppy Lane by Timeless Treasures

Lazies, Today we have Margo dressed in ‘Poppy Lane’ by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures. I love Alice’s style. I used her black/limey green ‘Kiwi’ line on our City Bag pattern cover recently. Alice – keep ’em comin’! Coincidentally, I have an Alice Kennedy on a branch of my family tree. Back to the Margo Handbag (LGD127), I could not resist this beautiful feature fabric. It’s perfect accented by the small red/white dot behind the pockets.

I chose a cute newsprint style piece for the lining, giving the inside of the bag plenty of brightness. A fabulous Atom Red zip from Coats & Clark matched beautifully! I rounded out the inside with a companion red/white poppy print for the pockets and small red/white dot for the Bag-E-Bottom sleeve. I chose black thread for all of the stitching.

The Margo Handbag pattern (LGD127) has already started shipping. Check your favorite local quilt shop or online for the pattern. Margo uses Bag-E-Bottom size F for the bag support. Supply list and info are posted at our blog here.

Quilt Market Zipper Demonstrations
I’ll be demonstrating my new easy zipper technique at Checker Distributors booth on Friday May 21 from noon to 12:45. Colleen will be demonstrating at the Pattern Peddler’s booth for an hour each morning.

    Will you have a video on the Internet show how you do the Zipper. Can you film the Demo and put it on you tube? Love the Bag and all the fabrics you show it in.

    This is my favorite one so far. I love the red, black and white fabric. My favorite purse colors. Very striking.

    Aargh! You’re killing me! I want to sew my purse patterns (City/Towne) so badly but am still recovering from surgery and anything I muster up energy to do must be household stuff til I get back to full recovery. I think this is the prettiest bag yet!

    I am curious, what do you do with all the bags you make up to show us? Probably display them at sewing expos and such, but then do you raffle them off for your employees, or charity events, or use them all yourself?

    Thanks for all your great patterns and ideas!

    Love this so much and can you find rustic orange mix w/ Red (Atumn & falls) ?

    OK, that’s it – I MUST make this bag in time for my nursing school reunion in the fall. The red, black and white combo is outstanding – might have to make 2 !
