I'm so happy to welcome you to the very first stop on the Etno Blog Tour! I'm Allison and I like to sew. A lot. I quilt and make bags and have even started trying to sew some clothes for myself. Have a look around to check out some of the goodies I've sewn or you can also check me out over on instagram.
When Pat said she was looking for some people to sew up something awesome with her new line, Etno, I knew I wanted in. This line is so fun! I especially like the bold graphics combined with some of my favorite colors.
I decided to pair the Dreams of Amina print (definitely one of my faves from the line) with a navy solid from my stash to make this Bonnie Bucket Bag. I love how it turned out! Of course I had to take advantage of the lining and zipper placket to pair a few more prints with it.
As you know, no bag is complete without a matching pouch - I mean really, who can have too many bags or pouches? I used my favorite new pouch pattern (the Lola pouch by Sotak Handmade) to make a matching pouch and I think they look pretty great together if I do say so myself.
Ready to see more awesome Etno projects? Check back tomorrow with Brandi and also at Pat's blog every day through April 18th for link to a great new post. You should also have a look at the free pattern designed for this line and Etno's lookbook for even more ideas in the meantime.
Thanks for stopping by!
