A little more on the Sewing Summit

 I received my email for Delish Magazines new issue the other day. Have you seen it? I hadn't heard of them until the Sewing Summit. They were at the Summit to spread the word about their online magazine and do an article. I looked at it today and I will definitely be a follower. The magazine has so much to offer including a great article about the Sewing Summit so check it out. 
The article led to thinking about the Sewing Summit and the bag I made and didn't really share.

 I love how it turned out and I toted it around all weekend. It's actually comprised of 4 different Echino prints and this amazing coated linen I found at Fabric Depot.

You can see there was no shortage of cool bags at the Summit. This is Jill next to me I love her fabric combo on her 241 tote. I blogged about my 241 tote here.
I made the bag by copying an old favorite I have. This is the coated linen bottom.
First zipper I've done this way
I had to add a pocket for the phone!


That should be it on the Sewing Summit for awhile. I can't wait until next year!
