HTP! Bags are such fun. I can get as crazy as I want to be and it just "works". Here's the front of the bag:
and here's the back:
The neon dog fab is a favorite of mine; I only have tiny pieces left! I think there's enough on Andrea's bag to give it just the right punch. The other fabs just seemed to scream, "Use me!" This could be because Zim paid a visit to the Quilt Studio, though. He's just a tad on the silly and playful side. OK, a LOT on the silly and playful side.
I quilted in a YLI variegated thread - Jewel. I only outlined the appliqués, as I wanted them to take center stage, not stitching.
I attached a special charm and some glass beads that I thought Andrea would like:
Here's a peek inside. I used some scraps from some favorite Laurel Burch fabs:
Speaking of fun, I've been a supporter for the MaPaw Siberian Husky Rescue group in PA for a long time. A few years ago, they took in a very pregnant Sibe who needed a new home - as would her puppies once they arrived and were weaned. I helped out a little bit with a fund-raiser - did a couple mini wall-hangings and pillows with photos of the new mom and puppies on them to be auctioned off. To make a long story short, one of those puppies was our buddy Echo. I'm so happy to have gotten to know his mom now and to count her as a friend. Since all of my guys were so kind to pose with the items I made for the MaPaw auction (you can see one of Amber here and one of Dave here), I thought it would only be appropropriate to have Dave pose with the new HTP! Bag I'd made for Echo's mom. :) Without further ado, here's the Deeve:
Here's the HTP! Bag you ordered, Echo!
Many thanks for the order, Andrea! I hope you and Echo enjoy your new HTP! Bag!
Thanks for reading!
