Lily Pocket Purse is Fat Quarter Friendly
Lazies, A fat quarter bundle is a quick and festive way to dress our new Lily Pocket Purse design (LGD128). Instead of using yardage from the bolt (listed below), I used a collection of 7 fat quarters in this scrumptious brown floral from Marcus. No need for shy prints on our new Girl, I chose the fun, busy, festive prints from this bundle.
Lily’s front pleats make geometrics and large prints even more fun. The long ovals of the waistband fabric creates great direction, creating a fun fragmented line pattern.
I picked up this bundle more than a year ago and I don’t remember the name of the line, but it’s by the fabulous Michele D’Amore – love her designs!
This Lily is an early prototype. The back pocket is a bit deeper on the final design to offer more security, great for a phone or small digital camera.
You know we all like to see inside, so here you go.
In case you missed it, we introduced Lily last week with some notes about design features and supplies. Here’s that blog post: Coming in September: Meet Lily!

Lazies, round up your fat quarters. Lily will be here soon! Lots more details and discussions of Lily to come…
i LOVE IT!! i wrote the item number down so we can order it at the shop….can’t wait to make mine!!
I made a quilt with that fabric. It’s called Mocha Meringue, and I LOVE it…….
It’s been popping up lately on various blogs, for some reason. Yes, it was over a year ago……maybe even two years.
Got it on order!! Thanks for another lovely design!

Can’t wait until this arrives in the mail! Can you speed up production a little? Would love to spend Labor Day weekend with Lily! (LOL)
Seriously Joan I am so glad you test your patterns and make sure everything is AOKAY before you sell them. There is a pattern company out there I.J. that has published so many patterns that are incorrect I no longer buy their patterns. If you go to the website the page that lists the corrections has dozens of ‘changes’!
Made a Miranda purse with that fabric Moda Meringue. Glad I over bought to make Lily
Love the fabric and love your pattern very handy!!
I really liked the fat quarter Lily purse you showed last week. I really like the big random dot that you said were from Marcus. I looked all over thenet and counln’t find anything even similar. Could you do a bit more research and double check what line from Marcus that fat quarter pack was from? I would love to use those dots in another project…
Thanks for the light-hearted approach. I love your website and name. Thank you
