Tree Top Fancy is the name of a fabric collection by Tina Givens. I fell in love with this fabric. I ordered a fat quarter bundle in the papaya colorway. Soooooo pretty. I made my friend Wendy this cute over the shoulder bag from this fabric for her birthday. I used a bag pattern from the latest issue of Quilts and More. It has cotton batting between the outer fabric and lining giving the bag some support.
Last year I made my daughter a wallet for her birthday to go with her Skie bag. She really likes this wallet but after 1 1/2 years of use it’s starting to look a little dingy. I should have sprayed the wallet with Scotch Guard to help protect it from getting dirty. Oh well. Anyway, I made her another with this fabric. One slight modification to the pattern to accommodate fat quarters and I was in business.
This bag has 12 card holders, a zip pouch, a velcro pouch and storage behind each of the card holder areas. This is the fourth one I’ve made. I think the next one will be for me.
