To go along with this promotion, I made a few dopp kits, or cosmetic pouches, out of this very special fabric. The shweshwe fabric is just lovely to work with! It has a little bit more weight than the typical quilting cotton - but certainly not so thick that it can't be used in a quilt. But for all sorts of zipper bags, the added weight provides that extra bit of structure and durability. I had a customer buy some to have a pet bed made and I know the fabric will stand up very well for that!
So, here are the three bags that have made the cut (excuse the pun!), so far, and are in the "Bags" section of my shop.
The very Hot Orange fabrics make up this one - and it is so cute!
"Minaret Windows" on the main body of bag + handles, along with "Spinning Dots" as an accent and for the lining.
Last, but not least, this fun one in the Hot Turquoise fabrics!
"Paisley" for the main body + handles, along with "Dots and Stripes" for the top and for the lining.
And all have a water-resistant layer of polyester "shower curtain" fabric sandwiched between the exterior and lining fabrics. This way, if there are any spills inside, they should stay inside. Perfect for travel! All the bags are washable, although I recommend cooler temperatures to prolong the life of the fabric.
