Day 1 of our Tammy Project BAG blog hop with Riley Blake Designs and Corrado Cutlery DOVO as our sponsors!






Summer seems to be taking its time to get here, perhaps a splash of gingham 
here and there will bring whispers of sunshine and hours of stitching inspiration.

This Tammy Bag ( pattern here)will no doubt inspire you- we have a line up
of over 50 creators who will be doing their OWN thing with this pattern
and showing you what they have poured into it...

Look who is up today...
Cheer them on, they continue to be the inspiration 
of our Blog HOPS- without them, well we just would not exist! 

They truly are the STARS in our Quilting and Sewing International Quilting BEE! 
Our doors are always open for YOU too!

And with Gingham being soooo much the fabric of my inspiration this year...
I called upon Riley Blake Designs who of course is leading in the GINGHAM fever..
They have 3 gorgeous bundles of Gingham fabric for 3 winners at the end of our 
blog hop. I also called upon Jim at Corrado Cutlery who happens to have 
DOVO Scissors. I have 2 pairs and I cannot imagine sewing or quilting without them.
In fact they were the inspiration behind me designing this TAMMY BAG. I wanted
to have them in a place I could always find them, hence the pockets on the outside
of this bag.   If you have never used DOVO scissors can I say they are possibly the BEST
scissors I have ever owned. By now you all know I never ever talk about anything I don't believe
in 100%. So thanks to Jim, we have 2 pairs to giveaway in addition to our Gingham bundles
from RBD. 

How can you win? Be a great cheerleader! Leave comments with our ladies
drop us a line too.  Participate in future hops, all those who participate have 3 chances
of winning and all of them will share that our winnings are much more than they could 
ever imagine. We always add extras as our sponsors our very generous with us, so we just
pass it on to YOU. Be creative, it pays to be....ask those who have won!


Top 2 of the day....





This lady filled it to capacity with sewing notions and hand embroidery projects..
with the added lace , doesn't it look very vintage....lovely indeed!



This lady chose to make her Tammy bag into a crochet bag...
the green ruffle and plain black fabric just has soooo much impact..

And most creative 


and look what this lady created....she cycled a family of accessories...
with having the change purse you can see how large the Tammy bag is....
delightful creativity!

  12. So many lovely Tammy bags. I think all of them are so wonderful, and I have all of the top as my favorite. I have started on my purse today.
    It is so fun, but the hardest bit is to choose the fabric, I changed my mind three times, before I started.
    I am looking forward to all the coming days

  15. Here you go Susan

    I didn't see an anonymous option for commenting on the blog, so if you would like to add this one please do.

    It always amazes me how different fabrics, trims or colors change the whole look of a specific pattern. Sometimes I am just not sure about a particular pattern until I see what someone else has done with it. I believe this is one of those times. Looking forward to seeing what the next days bring.

    I would love to win a pair of those scissors and/or the fabric :-)

    Susan
