The Summit pack...
Hey, you guys, I’m really excited to share my make with you all this time.
Its February and that means I’m leading Sew My Style this month!
If you aren’t aware of what this is, it’s an international sewing challenge, where each month discount codes are issued to makers who are signed up to the subscription list, for both the two chosen patterns that month. Then at the end of the month a winner is chosen at random from all the entries, so you don’t have to worry or feel excluded if you are not the most experienced maker.
Anyway, my point is I’m leading, eek…and the lovely Sammy is this month’s sponsor!
The winner of the February make will win a £50 voucher to spend in The Samantha Claridge Studio!
So, I really wanted to choose some fabrics to showcase the fabulous range on Sammy’s website!
I’ve coveted the delightful quilting cottons on Sammy’s site for such a long time. But as I’m not really a quilter I haven’t used them much so far! But the pattern I’m making for months sew my style is the Cloudsplitter Summit Pack which conveniently suggests quilting cotton for the inside and outsides.
Or whether to choose these Figo Lucky charms, in Denim and Charcoal, which eventually won me over.
I chose these two as I decided that in this colour palette I would get absolutely loads of wear from the bag. The colours will be really hard wearing and not look too grubby even if I’m using it every day to walk to work with.
I chose the main colour of the exterior in the denim blue with the charcoal as an accent…
The charcoal is also used for the gadget pocket and card slot inside so that gives a great contrast to the interior. I used a left-over piece from my stash for the inside as I’m all about using up what I’ve already got in the interest of stash busting and sustainability.
That’s all for now, but why don’t you come and join me on sew my style this month, you could use the same Figo prints as me or maybe you’d like a summer bag!?
