I had so much fun sewing these samples for my upcoming sewing class at the local quilt shop! There’s just enough variety (a little quilting, some fusible fleece, little pockets) to make it interesting, but it’s not a complicated project with a million fussy pieces.
The first one I made was in a natural linen blend fabric. I experimented with diagonal quilting lines instead of vertical, just to see what the outcome would be. This one is just for me, and I’ve been using it whenever I take the dogs out for a walk.
The second one I made was in brighter, more eye-catching colors with a modern arrow print. This one is for the quilt shop to use as a sample and show people what they’ll be making when they sign up for the class.
The bag is part of the Pet Set sewing pattern by Patterns by Annie. It’s compact and works cross-body, and has the pocket on the outside that dispenses poo bags for when your dog does his business. I like to carry my phone, kleenex, and a small can of animal defense spray because we have such an off-leash dog problem in our neighborhood.
Class is Saturday, May 28, 2016, at 10:00 am at the Chandler location of 35th Ave Sew and Vac. You can visit the Dog Walking Bag class registration page for more information or to sign up.
