In The Pink

I have finished up my new "Stuffle", made using Tula Pink Monkeywrench fabrics.  I love it!  All the wild colours and prints are a great pick-me-up on a wintry day.  25 different fabrics were sewn together in curvy strips to make one large piece of patchwork.
It was fun to use my Tula Sunrise thread collection from Aurifil for the piecing.
An assortment of heavier weight threads were selected for the quilting, especially 12 and 28 weights.  I want the bag to be durable.

This zipper is perfect!
The zipper and straps were sewn using 28 weight thread.
 The ends on my original Stuffle used only 4 colours, but for this version I used all 24;  the 25th covered the button used in the centre.
 The ends went in very easily.

  Of course Polly had to check out the lining.
 As pretty as it looks in the snow...I think it would be even nicer on a beach somewhere :)
If you would like to make your own Stuffle, the pattern is here, fabrics (as well as that gorgeous zipper!) are available at Mrs Pugsley's Emporium, and the threads are available online from my thread store.


  1. It's gorgeous! And Polly looks ready to travel.

  2. It's a Polly bag! Lurve that zipper's rainbow teeth, how flash is that?

  3. Tula Pink fabrics are so wonderfully bright. They sell out quickly around here. I hope your bag takes you on an adventure away from the snow.

  4. What a fun bag! It is gorgeous in the snow, but a beach would be nice wouldn't it? I love that it goes with anything, and you probably won't have it go missing among all the black and brown bags!
