the Stella bag & Blend Fabric

Have you heard of Blend Fabrics?  They're the licensing division of Anna Griffin {I've known of Anna Griffin for years...thanks to my stationery hoarding loving!}.  So, when we were contacted and asked if we'd like to design some bags with their fabrics, we jumped at the chance {you can learn more about Blend Fabrics at their blog too}!

When the fabrics arrived, we were so pleased with the lovely sheen of them, and the colors, though softer than we often use, are also beautiful.

Here is our first design: the Stella diaper bag.  This one is more traditional in size than our regular diaper bags, but we thought it would be a great addition to our pattern lineup {didn't my mom do a fabulous job?  When it arrived in the mail for me to photograph I was so impressed!!}.  The fabric line used is Magic Garden by Sabine Reinhart for Blend fabrics {you can find Magic Garden here, here, and here}.

This bag is nice and roomy, and has lots of pockets on the outside {and a couple on the inside too!}, so it is easy to keep everything sorted.

We've put a tie on the side of the bag, so it can be expanded or cinched up, depending on your daily load, that way you don't have to switch bags!

And here's a better shot of it untied, as you can see, there is plenty of room!

We should be releasing the pattern soon, but were too excited to wait any longer to share.  And we have another Blend Fabrics bag in the works too!

  1. Beautiful design for the Stella, I love the ties on the side. I believe I have found a new fabric company to love (not that there was a shortage!!!). The collections Blend Fabric has are amazing. I can't decide which group to buy first.
