I can make a thousand bags and still need more. I first designed this Drawstring Bag pattern for my camera bag and I still use it every single day. I thought it was time for a new one and wanted to make it boldly coloured. This Melody Miller ‘Ruby Star Rising’ Transistor Radio print that I had in my stash was perfect. It was only after I had made it that I realized that I had been totally inspired by Katherine’s camera bag made with the same Transistor Radio print in the softer colours! I found the perfect cotton ribbon at Mokuba for the drawstring and I just used little bits of the Transistor Radio print to make the hexagon tabs.
I love the bold colour palette of this print so much, I’ve decided to use it as a starting point for my Scrappy String Quilt colours. I’ve started making the blocks and I’m really excited to see how this turns out!

I used this fabric to make my second tie, for my doctor: who did a wonderful job on my eyes. However, it was too much.. for him. He did not like it. He wore it the day when I gave it to him, but shyly he said he didn’t after that
I was a little sad.
It’s such an amazing print, with the transistor radio, the colours are wonderful.
I almost wanted to ask for it back, because I would wear it myself.
Hopeing he will save it for his little 2yr old boy or little girl, maybe she will wear it when she is a cool teenager.
It’s great to see this version in a bag, looks amazing.
