First Steps in a Strip Patchwork Bag

7 Jun

I chose some of my polka dot oilcloth to start putting together strips to make a piece of patched fabric to make my bag.

I cut strips anything between one and a half inch to three and a half inches wide and 18″ long.

I sewed all the strips together.

Here is my completed piece so far –

I think I might cut it up some more so the piecing is more broken up.

Further steps will happen over the next few days.

Looking forward till then,

    I love the start of your H piece. You are doing all the right things when you do an ‘ inspired by ‘ piece . I once went to a workshop on this theme and we were taught to look closely at the artists favorite colours and shapes and how the artist puts them together . It is a fun process. I love the colors you have chosen .
