I have been enjoying the Kate Spain Blog Hop thru June and just happened to have won a gift certificate (for fabric) which allowed me to purchase some wonderful Serenade that I have been drooling over.
Beautiful butterflies, leafy vines and rich textures in great colour. And I knew what I wanted to use this Jelly Roll of Serenade for..........
A Bunny Hill Designs Jelly Bag. I made one of these before and gifted it on, so I wanted a new Summer bag for carrying projects on trips, or packing for a picnic, even an outing to the beach.
Here's my Kate Spain Jelly Bag. I chose the orange strips - a lovely color for Summer. The buttons (pattern calls for covered buttons) are lovely gifts from a friend from London - a perfect match - and I get to carry that friendship with me now.
And a large pocket on each side of the inside of the bag.
There were enough strips to make another Jelly Bag with the blue and purple. Plus I made some of the Bunny Hill Designs Little Jelly Bags. I had just one full strip on the orange butterflies and a couple of 2.5" squares left (and I am sure they will get used in a project) - I used my Serenade to it's fullest!
I will be linking up with Blossom Heart Quilts - please take a look at all the Kate Spain projects produced during the hop.
