Tree Top Fancy

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.
