Echino How I Love You So.....

Earlier this week this cute little FQ bundle arrived from Seamstar for me.

Now though I was trying to be a good girl and not spend any more money on fabric this month, Courtney had a little offer on this bundle that tempted me. Hmm, don't they all?!

Now I love Echino its so fresh and modern, some of you may remember this post from earlier in the year? I've still not cut into the 3m I bought for this pattern, but am aiming to make the tunic over the next few weeks.

So what to make? Well I'd seen this pattern a while ago and it was just perfect! So I adapted the pattern slightly and made me a pouch for my beloved iPhone!!

I used the Echino Spring 2010 - Bicycles in Purple. I just love it, it keeps my iPhone nice and safe and looks good too. What more could a girl ask for?

Now for the inner I used some lovely pink check fabric that I was given in the Fabric Addicts swap by Blueberry Heart. Its the same weight as the Echino (linen blend) and complimented the design perfectly.

So that's it for today as I have two little people desprate to take their bikes to the park!


  1. Looks brilliant! Love the fabric. Pootleflump x

  2. Oh I know, this fabric is gorgeous. I found some at the Festival of Quilts. Have fun cutting into it.

  3. Lovely fabric, Love the colour, who could resist!

  4. I noticed that bundle too, which I had noticed her offer this week, oh well I'm sure there'll be another time. Love your new pouch, echino fabrics are such a great weight for projects like that.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend
