PURR-FECT PATCHWORK BLOG TOUR - Purr-fect Patchwork Tote

Posted by Tracy Loyek on

Cat-loving quilters mew-nite💜  this new book by Pamela Jane Morgan for C&T Publishing contains 16 feline fabric & craft original cat-themed quilts & textile projects for Modern CAT people!  I have always had a special place in my heart for cats/katz and sewing,  so this project book was a definite yes on my sewing list! I’m SEW excited to share my adventures with the NEW fabulous book: Purr-fect Patchwork by Pamela Jane Morgan. We have it available in our shop and online website.    

I chose to feature the Purr-fect Patchwork Tote because I love bag making and this one features the cutest little cat peeking out of a pocket. Grab a pair of old denim jeans and let’s get sewing - it’s the purr-fect recycling project.   Thanks to some very special people in my life,  Jocelyn & Stan, for donating a used pair of jeans for this project 

The pattern book calls for felt pieces which add beautiful texture to the project but I couldn’t resist using some purple sparkle vinyl for my cat/katz personality.  

I love the shape and structure of this bag.  The foundation is ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable.  This was a quick project with many opportunities to personalize it.   Clear instructions and lots of pictures make it easy to follow and this is a great “first bag”.  

 The bag calls for a magnet and zipper and I always use bag hardware from Emmaline Bags because of its quality and beautiful appearance.  This picture showcases their iridescent zippers and pulls - my favorite.   

There are so many fabulous projects in this book. My friend Wendy and I made the Stabby Tabby pincushion at retreat from recycled jars and I just had to make the Hiss and Makeup Bag for my little wonder clips.

  • I got a sneak peek at this book and let me just say it is a fabulous book! Fun for the cat lover in your life! I made the little Stabby Tabby pin cushion with Tracy and it was such a cute fun project! I am almost done my Purr-fect Patchwork Tote. I’m a beginner bag maker and the instructions for this project are so easy to understand. I usually have trouble just reading a pattern, (I’m a visual learner) but the author has made is very easy to make it. Can’t wait to make more projects from this incredible book!
