Is doing sports one of your purposes for the new course? Maybe you’ll be even more motivated (it works for me) using a sport bag made by you, quilted and soft, flexible and washable.
To make my own I’ve used a well-keeped-over-the-years fabric which has been waiting in my studio(s) for its big moment. It’s a kind of treasure not very easy to find: discontinued fabrics at good price, available in short quantity rescued from the last corner of the store warehouse. Actually most of the quilted fabrics you can get at stores are plain colors so I’m working in a second part of this post to give you some advices to make your own with any fabric you choose.
I found this mini-collection around 2002 at Madrid’s fabric store Ribes&Casals. In that moment I didn’t know what I would make with them but it was love at first sight so I kept them until today.
I’ll show you in a quick tutorial how to make this bag. Really easy!(more…)
