Normally when we hear the phrase bob along we think of bobbing our heads along to an awesome song on the radio but in this case it means sewing along while making The Bob Bag designed by Quilt Jane. And if you're playing your awesome music you can bob along while sewing in the Bob-A-Long! How perfect would that be!?
|My version of The Bob Bag in orange. My colour choice was dictated by the orange grosgrain that came wrapped around a pair of Joe Fresh pyjamas I bought for my daughter last week.|
Basically it's like a quilt-a-long but we're sewing an awesome little box to keep our bobbins in when we're out and about with our English Paper Piecing (EPP) projects. This way we can take an assortment of threads with us but we don't have to take several large spools. Or, if you don't EPP this would also be a fantastic little box for your Wonder Clips or other small sewing notions. I will share some of my tips with you if you would like to make one too. And bonus: Instead of the hours it takes to sew a quilt you can have this project done in an afternoon.
|You can make it with bolts to put your bobbins on or without if you would like to keep something else in the box.|
|I had originally planned to use a co-ordinating blue fabric on the outside of the bag but I didn't have enough blue twill so my colour plans changed halfway through the project.|
|I am so happy that I was flexible with my colour choice because I love this cheery bag. The fabric came from Japan and the text says "We love things delicious. For example fruit & sweets." I think this little bag is delicious too!|
