A few weeks ago I was able to go away for the weekend on a sewing retreat with friends.
Retreats are pretty much my favorite, other than the ridiculously small amount of sleep I get. :0
One of the few projects I got done was my very own
I even used one of my hoarded "I paid WAY too much for this" Melody Miller Aqua Typewriters.
It's pretty much aqua perfection for me in ever way.
For the insides I used more of my aqua favorites. Sandi Henderson Henna, Denyse Schmidt Dots, and Sarah Jane Wee Wander Lightening Bugs.
The henna was another overly priced piece I bought on #thegreatfabricdestash, but rather than hoard that kind of stuff, this year I'm determined to use it with reckless abandonment!
I'm living on the edge in 2015! :)
If you haven't made your own sew together bag yet, I HIGHLY recommend following the sew along done by Heather at The Quilt Barn. I couldn't have made mine without it!
