Lilac Mini Messenger Bag

This is another free pattern by Blue Calla Patterns, called the Lilac Mini Messenger Bag. I love how she names all her bags after flowers, since her pattern company is also a flower name. Her free patterns are great!!!
I recently bought a fat quarter pack of Route 66 fabric, aptly called Get Your Kicks (by RJR Fabrics). The fabric was purchased at my quilt groups recent garage sale. There were a few different prints in 3 colorways. Some fabrics had road signs, some cars, some iconic places along Route 66 (restaurants, gas stations, etc.) and a map fabric of the states along the route. I am making bags out of the fabric (surprise)! 

I thought the flap of this bag was a good place to show case this print.

A back zippered pocket.

Inside is a slip pocket.

Another one I am linking up to Elm Street Quilts Bag It 2017.

  1. Red and Route 66? Gotta love it, Daryl. I don't know what it is about Route 66 that always attracts my interest, but here's the weirdest coincidence: as I type this I am wearing a t-shirt with a Route 66 print! Looking forward to seeing your other fabric selections come to life.

  2. Daryl you always find such fun patterns and fabrics - I love this! And now I'm singing Get your KICKS ... on ROUTE ... 66 ... and I can't stop, lol!

  3. thanks for the tip, some of my yoga teachers use those bottles and I've always wondered where they got them. I love using messenger bags I think they're functional and the cross the body feels good to wear. it's also a good way to highlight a fabric and your route 66 looks bold. great job all around.

  4. You did a wonderful job on that bag! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts Bag It!

  5. What a fun bag, well done! Thanks for linking up :)
