Can you believe that autumn is here already? Here in North Idaho, we are relishing the cooler days after a long, hot summer. We’re also starting to see the change in color of the deciduous trees here, though most of our landscape will stay green throughout the coming months.
With the changing colors of the leaves comes the changing of our wardrobes too. If you’re like me, you have favorite pieces of clothes that you would wear year round if you could. Well, this is your moment! Reach back into the depths of your closet, stand up on your tiptoes to reach that top shelf, and brave the dark corners of the basement… Dust off your boots, shake out your sweaters, and untangle your scarves for this is their day to shine!
Or perhaps you’re one of our friends from the other hemisphere and you’re changing your wardrobe in the opposite direction. Either way, the beginning of a new month is a great time for a new look!
No girl can have too many bags, and we think you’ll agree that your new wardrobe won’t be complete without a new bag. Check out these great designs...
|The Gypsy Sling|
For an easy weekend project and fresh autumn bag, pair one (or more!) of these patterns with your favorite fabrics from our new collection, Honeysweet.
|Honeysweet by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda Fabrics|
The roomy silhouette of The Gypsy Sling is perfect for showcasing the bold yet elegant pattern you find in Scrollwork. You're sure to find a color that suits you as this fabric is available in Raspberry (shown below), Pear, Persimmon, Pond and Biscuit. Amber Drops Ivory in Biscuit coordinates as a lining.
The hexagons on Hexie Happy remind me of piles of autumn leaves. Fabrics from the Persimmon, Hazel, and Pear colorways will take you back to your childhood days of jumping in leaves!
City Zipper would be the perfect bag to showcase all the warm autumn colors of Honeysweet! Mini Charm Packs would make assembling the outside of the bag a breeze. Pick up some coordinating yardage for the lining, pockets and handles and you'll have a very fashionable fall accessory!
Honeysweet offers a rainbow of autumn colors and a variety of pattern sizes to fit whatever project you choose. You can shop the entire collection here to find the fabric that speaks to you. We have many more bag and tote patterns to choose from as well.
