Cutting Table Action



My design wall is pretty boring today -- all the action is on my cutting table.  There is a layered fat quarter awaiting quilting so that it can become the model for my ereader bag pattern, a pattern for a Thanksgiving table runner, and some Tyvek which is awaiting its turn to be part of my latest evil experiments...bwahahaha!

There is an initial post about the Tyvek here at http://andthenwesetitonfire.blogspot.com/.

And for those who were kind enough to offer advice for last week's post, here are shots of the finished bag.  I took Beth's advice and did a tiny bit of lime green piping on the pocket binding.  And I used the fabric for the pocket that most of you liked. I used my favorite for the lining.  I'm really pleased with the way it turned out -- thanks for such good advice!

Um, yes, I know that the strap is missing.  I left it off because I usually carry it in my bag, not over my shoulder.  But when I took it into my LQS to show it off, they LOVED the strap.  So it will be included in the pattern.

Ok... love the fabric on the cutting table!!! Aboriginal Aussie? The bag is fabulous... what are the dimentions of the bag... I need something for the Xoom.... but I think it's bigger than an Ereader..... and I really do like the piping, too!!!

I'm with Beth regarding your cutting table fabric - Love it! What is it?
The bag looks great. I have been thinking about what I want to do for my iPad cover and every time I pull out fabric to start, I change my mind.
Yours looks great!
Cheers,

Oooo, yummy fabrics, want to play! The bag is cute as it can be -- I don't have an ereader (I listen to my books), I'll bet it could be adapted.
