We selected six challengers to show us what they could do with the latest Oakshott cotton Lipari collection! Oakshott cottons have a beautiful weave with different warp and weft thread colors, giving the fabric a rich depth of color. The fabric is available at local regional quilt shops, directly from the manufacturer in the UK, or online from Contemporary Cloth in the US.
Our Oakshott Lipari Patchwork Tote Challengers have all sewn beautiful bags!:
- Teresa of Dandelion Drift
- Anjeanette Klinder
- Jennifer of Sewplicity
- Megan of Monkey Beans
- Erin of Seamstress Erin
- Michelle of Falafel and the Bee
Today’s tote from Falafel and the Bee is Michelle’s own design, with pockets, piping and a circle too. (See the link for the circle and more!)
Michelle writes, “This fabric is beyond dreamy. I may have stroked it a bit before deciding what to sew. Gah. It is THAT pretty.” Find more at Falafel and the Bee!
You can sew with new Oakshott fabric too. Comment in any of the Oakshott Lipari Patchwork Tote Challenge posts for a chance to win a fat eighth pack of Oakshott Lipari!
