May Giveaway Day! --Kathy Davis Journeys Fabric & More

Hi friends, and welcome to my May Giveaway!  But first I have to tell you about my new bag.


I was recently sent a gorgeous stack of fabric (plus a book and some cards!) from the Journeys collection by Kathy Davis. I have been wanting to make myself a new bag and had the Amy Butler book, Style Stitches, (affiliate link) checked out of the library. I decided to make myself the Teardrop Bag using some of the Journeys fabric:
my new bag
(I didn't get photos taken when the bag was brand new because I made it in a rush before vacation. It's a little bit broken in here--it's been a great bag and I really like it!)

My thoughts on the pattern and the bag--
*I used the recommended Shapeflex interfacing; next time I might try a stiffer interfacing or interline the bag with stiffer canvas or use fusible fleece instead. (It's a little floppy.)
*There is an error in the book for the larger sized Teardrop bag. If you want to make this bag, check out the correction for the pattern on this page.
*I followed the pattern for the handle and it turned out too narrow for my tastes, so I made another one and widened it.
*I found some good tips on inserting magnetic snaps here. I used 2 layers of interlock knit to reinforce the snap pieces, instead of fleece.
*I sewed some dividing seams in the pocket, you can sort of see them in this pic:
inside shot of teardrop bag
My phone fits just right in that center pocket.
*The strap. I lengthened the strap so I could wear it cross-body but I don't think I got it quite right. Someday I need to figure out how to make an adjustable-length strap.
*And, I used sewn-in interfacing on one side of the strap and added some sturdiness by using a layer of twill fabric in place of interfacing the other side of the strap fabric.

 
Ok, you made it! The folks from Kathy Davis Designs would also like to give a set of these fabrics to one of my readers. The giveaway includes:
Half-yard cuts of the following fabrics (this was my set, obviously I've used some of them):
Kathy Davis Journeys fabric
I like all of these... but I LOVE the text fabric, and the dragonflies are my favorite, too! The large floral in the top row is also super pretty.

Also included in the giveaway is the book Scatter Joy, along with a pile of gorgeous greeting cards, all by Kathy Davis as well.
Kathy Davis book and greeting cards
(The giveaway does not include the bag!)

**The giveaway is closed now, thanks so much! Winner will be posted in the morning!**

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below (one comment per person.) I'd love it if you tell me something interesting, but it's not required. :D I will choose the winner via random number generator on May 25, and the folks at Kathy Davis Studios will mail the prize to the winner. Don't forget to make sure I have a way to contact you! If you are a no-reply commenter, include your email address in your comment!

mennikelly said...

I am putting together a king size quilt with different block sizes and therefore, different sashing sizes. It's kind of a pain, but perhaps better than cutting off the points on all my pinwheels.

floreksa said...

What a great giveaway.

DianeY said...

You should be a pattern tester-your hints were great. I get a little fed up when I'm using a pattern, and it doesn't come together so great & I need to make changes! I'm not familiar with Kathy Davis so thanks for the links-the fabrics are really nice!

Staci said...

Those fabrics are just gorgeous--I'm sure they are even prettier in person. Can't think of anything interesting, feeling kind of worn out. I went to bed late, and then woke up in a total panic because I was sure I had overslept. Jumped out of bed, hopped in the shower, when I got out I looked at the clock. I had woken up at 4:15 AM, when I didn't need to be out of bed until 6:30. Wow! FAIL! Got all the chores done though, and now I can play on the computer! Not too interesting, but it's all I have on this Monday morning.
Thank you for participating in Giveaway Day!

Gina said...

Great bag! :) and those are such lovely fabrics, I would love to win them. Thank you so much for opening this giveaway for international followers :)

Gale, Ky quilter said...

The bag is beautiful - you did a great job and I LOVE those fabrics! I am a handquilter and have been for 12 years and just now venturing into purse making and I love it! Love how fast they work up and I've learned that quilting fabric works on purses as well as quilts! Have a great day and Happy Stitching!

Sharon said...

Lovely fabrics! I made the teardrop bag for my stepdaughter and she loved it. Just the right size for running around on the weekends. Thanks for the giveaway!

krisgray said...

Lovely bag! I've never used an Amy Butler pattern - are they easy? I made a huge Paris Bag from Fig Tree and the directions were wonderful.

Caranam said...

Interesting fact of the day: Karoke means "empty orchestra" in Japanese.

Well, in entertained me anyway =)

I love the fabric you are offering and think the bag you did is crazy inspirational. If I won I'd definitely be thinking of making one of my own.

Thanks for an awesome giveaway!

lovely fabrics! thanks for the entry!

J Strizzy said...

An adjustable strap would be a great idea - maybe for a simple one you could use D-rings attached to one side of the bag, to pull the strap through?

Jen said...

Cute bag! Something interesting...My doggie (who normally hates being in the rain) apparently thought the joy of rolling on bugs outweighed her dislike of being wet. So now I have a wet, stinky dog. Sleeping on the quilt I had just finished and washed.

I can never think of anything when asked to share something interesting, so I'll share a favorite joke of my son's.

Katie said...

Nice giveaway. Thanks for the chance to win.

Jazz said...

thanks for the giveaway!

ircabbit said...

Interesting, eh? I have always used universal needles for sewing cottons and for piecing, but I found out that sharps (or denim needles) are actually the recommended needle for woven fabrics because the sharp point finds its way between the fibers without punching a big hole. Universal is kind of an in-between type needle that isn't the best for anything, so I'm using up my current stash and then I'm gonna switch over to sharps.

Ronny and Carla said...

Karo said...

I'm finishing my teaching degree this summer and am loving the extra time I have to craft. My mom and I are starting a quilt and I'm crocheting and sewing up a storm. Love these gorgeous fabrics!

It was the chicken's day off.

(Sorry!)

That fabric is beautiful. Something interesting makes my mind go empty. O.K., there was a hummingbird here, since that is only the third time I've seen one, I think that's interesting. Thanks.

I have recently started making bags from recycled clothing and bits and pieces I find- mostly for my own amusement but perhaps I will make millions selling them one day. You fabrics would be lovely additions to my creations.

pianomama said...

The bag is wonderful! And the fabrics are yummy!

Ammie said...

Awesome giveaway! Those fabrics are gorgeous. I made a few purses recently, too, and decided that stiffer interfacing would improve them. I also learned that aligning magnetic snaps is much easier if you attach the snaps, close them, and THEN sew around the lining (all but the opening for turning the bag right side out). You may already know this trick, but I really loved learning it!

Pam said...

Hello,
This is a new designer to me. I really love that fabric with the writing on it. My daughter and I are making camera bags. This would be great fabric for those. I think the camera bag pattern has those adjustable straps. We are just cutting now, so sorry I can't share how to do that. I think it has to do with rings.

Jennifer W. said...

Amy Butler fabric is what lead me to sewing... and her nappy bag was the first pattern I ever sewed! Thanks for the giveaway!

Thanks for the giveaway. Something interesting . . . I love bubble wrap and bubble wrap just turned 50!

Grams said...

Your purse and the fabrics are sooo pretty. Quilting is my favorite pastime but I seem to do more sewing for my grandchildren and embroidering burp cloths and other items and don't get to quilt nearly as much as I'd like. Guess it just makes me appreciate it more:)

Hmmmmmm something interesting about me? I got to "retire" when I was 43 yrs old. :) Unfortuntately it was because of health problems but it still means I can sew all day long if I want to so that's a big plus.

Something interesting, hum...my sister got married this past Saturday. It was a very exhausting experience. Yesterday at work, my building received a bomb threat, and we had to evaucate by word of mouth. Very scary!

Thanks for the giveaway!

These fabrics are very pretty. And I do agree! The text fabric is to die for. These fabrics would make just about any purse pop! :D

Well, I don't know how interesting it is, but my one year old computer died last night in the middle of visiting all the SMS giveaways. I've now been on the phone with Dell for almost two hours attempting to get it repaired. Using my old, ancient, slow backup at the moment while waiting for yet another callback. Yawn. Thanks for participating in the giveaway! I need fabric therapy to get over my computer stress.

Something interesting? My family travelled a lot as a kid, so I've been to 63 countries and all seven continents.
