Contest Entry: Cats Out of the Bag
Earth day cut & sew bag
DId you know that the United States alone uses approximately 100 billion new plastic bags every single year? To honor Earth Day 2014, we're asking you to create a cut & sew pattern for a reusable shopping bag. The design should be set up to be centered. Preview will be sized at a single yard (42" x 36") of Kona Cotton, although your actual design may fill a yard of one of our wider fabrics. Deadline for entry is April 15th, 2014.
|Cats Out of the Bag|
|Exterior design of the grocery bag, featuring my cats Richard and Regelwyn, the pink ends up on the sides.|
This cat design is also available as a pillow here, and the wooden background is available here.
|The interioir of the large bag is lined with my Sweet Kitties Repeat.|
|A matching clutch with another of my designs featuring my cats is available on the wider fabrics (at least 54").|
The clutch requires a zipper approximately 11" long.
|The interior of the clutch also features Richard and Regelwyn in my Kitty Cuddle Stripe.|
|And here's the design on the coin purse. You can put either the pink or blue on the outside and use the other as a lining, or you can make an unlined purse with both as exterior fabrics.|
