Some sewers might be stumped on what to use 12wt thread for, after all it isn't your traditional medium sized thread. What a lot of people don't realize is how beautiful, bold, and versatile this thicker thread can be, and what kind of effects you can create with it.
The San Clemente tote bag pattern by A Quilter’s Dream is a favourite of ours at Flare Fabrics. Its simple construction makes it a great project for beginners and experienced quilters alike. Just 6 fat quarters is all the fabric you need for outside, lining and 2 good-sized pockets. Its the perfect size to carry around your belongings for the day, and you can easily make this bag in a few hours.
In preparation for our Fall show schedule, we created a second colour way for our Barbados bag kit. You can now create this wonderful, sturdy bag with great pockets in beautiful reddish tones as well as the earthy green and brown kit that we already had available.
