Are you an Anglophile? I most certainly am! When we were young, my cousin and I used to pretend to have British accents while traveling through Yellowstone National Park. As I have grown older, I still love British accents and have a slight obsession with Jane Austen, British Royalty, any British History and the Great British Baking show to name a few. So yes, I am an Anglophile! When I saw Amy’s new fabric line- Notting Hill for Riley Blake I just knew I had to make something with it!
Riley Blake recently released a line of Chambray fabric by Christopher (a.k.a. the Tattooed- quilter.) I wanted to try it out too! Doesn’t it match perfectly with this Notting Hill fabric?
I decided to make a travel pouch in anticipation of the day when I get to travel again! Do you want to make one too?
Here are the supplies you will need:
Walking Foot for your sewing machine
I created a video on my new YouTube Channel! I take you step by step on how to sew a zipper! Make sure to subscribe!
Let’s be honest 50 weight is my favorite! I use it for everything! I used it to construct the bag. You can’t see it on the outside of the bag, but it is holding it all together. You can see 50 weight in action in my video!
I decided to add the word London to the bag. I drew out the text, traced it on the chambray and stitched it with floss. I love using Aurifil floss. They have so many colors! I can always find the right shade that I need.
I am new to using 28 weight thread. I really wanted the quilting to stand out (even if it is straight line quilting). I absolutely love the way this Aurifil stands out on the Chambray. I used Aurifil 2415 for both the 28 weight and the floss. And it matches Notting Hill perfectly!
The last thing I added to the bag was a Vinyl-lined interior. I used HeatnBond Iron-on Vinyl to turn this pretty floral into a vinyl interior. This protects the fabric from spills or messes that may occur while using the pouch. Who am I kidding?!? My kids are going to spill all over this! Now it will wipe clean WHEN the mess happens.
Now I’m all ready for my next adventure! Whenever the world opens up again! London is high up on my list!
