Aqua Sew Together Bag

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! 

P.S.  The beautiful rainbow quilt in the background of the top picture was made by the lovely Andy at A Bright Corner.  The pattern is Dashing from the book Vintage Vibe by Amber Johnson of Gigi's Thimble. Isn't is gorgeous in rainbow order?!

Linking up to Finish It Friday
