Disappearing Arabella in P&Q

Delighted to see the article on my Disappearing Arabella folding tote bag has been published in Patchwork & Quilting magazine this month.


This piece was accepted months ago, but put on hold until a suitable gap came up in the P&Q schedule – http://www.pandqmagazine.com/issues/?i=4309


The original idea was a take on the ubiquitous creamy calico tote bag, but I also made one up in bright batiks as a contrast. I think this one is much nicer than the original now & have made up kits in other vivid colours (see the Etsy shop page).


The bag pattern has a simple, but effective trick that allows the bag to fold up into a little pouch formed by the pocket. I like working out little details like that.
