Journey by Monaluna

I can't believe I get to do a third post with Monaluna Organic Fabrics! The new Journey collection is just so lovely to work with ... come see! 

I love that every time I get my hands on some Monaluna Organic fabrics I'm inspired to go out of my comfort zone to make something that I don't normally make. I've admired Swoon Patterns (affiliate link) for years, purchased several of their patterns, made a Betty Bowler once but then never got around to making another...until now! I thought the Donna Vintage bag would be the perfect canvas to show case the Skull & Roses print. 

With a little fussy cutting I managed to center the bigger skulls and highlight them. I made my own piping with the Birdseed in blue print. 

Finally for the inside I used Arrows for the lining. Its a beautiful coral, its acutally a pitty that its hiding inside! 

With all the fabulous prints in the Journey collection it was really hard to choose! 

A huge thank you to Jennifer of Monaluna for supplying us with these wonderful fabrics! You'll want to check out the other stops on the tour today starting with Gemia, our hostess with the mostess, over at Phat Quarters

  1. Adorable,

    both the bag and the prints! I too sometimes have an issue with using adorable prints as lining - but then the pop of color when you open a bag, wow!
