Do you ever have any special fabric that you have that you can’t bear to use? The first time I went to Purl Soho in New York City, I fell in love with this beautiful colorful butterfly fabric called Canyon Flutter by Alexander Henry. It was my first time shopping at a fancy, designer fabric store and the print just seemed to call my name. I had to have it! Everyone knows I love butterflies! At $18/yard, it was a total splurge for me and the most expensive fabric I had ever bought at the time. I didn’t know what I was going to make with it, but I LOVED it and kept saving it for a special project. I couldn’t bear to use it though! It just sat on the bottom of my fabric bins just waiting for a worthy project. Finally, four years later, I finally took it out of my stash and made these boxed bags out of it:
I like how the stripes and dots add a fun pop of color on the inside! And the oilcloth was a much better choice than the iron on vinyl that I used on the bags I showed you yesterday. It was much thicker yet pliable and didn’t look all wrinkly.
I love how fun and colorful these bags are!!
These boxed bags are perfect for holding odds and ends and keeping myself organized!
