Patchwork Bag

Cake Goddess (aka Sweetcakes) recently surprised me with this gorgeous patchwork bag. She incorporated the colors from my tablecloth, in addition to some very fun teapot fabric from Mary Engelbreit (found at Hobby Lobby). She used Simplicity pattern 9963. I love this bag! It's so whimsical and useful at the same time! (And orange is my favorite color.)

What a gorgeous bag your friend made! I believe I've seen this same orange floral print at a quilt shop, but I wouldn't have thought of pairing it with the red teapot print. Brilliant!

My good friend Joanie always uses red and orange together. Sometimes she throws in some purple as well. Lovely bag....but lovelier friend!

Great tote bag! I purchased some of the "spiced tea" orange fabric at my local quilt shop and now I am inspired to use it.
