So are you wondering what this is all about? A blog tour? If you don't know what it is basically it's a set amount of time with a bunch of bloggers all linked together to promote something, the thing this time is the wonderful new collection of fabric designed by
Jessica Swift called Lugu.
Jessica asked for volunteers to create items with her new collection, I applied and was accepted (woo hoo) one of 24 artists to create something special to showcase this fantastic new collection of fabrics. And how do we showcase it? On our blogs! And you'll also find photos on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest because I like to do as much as I can to promote.
We're about half way through the tour I believe I'm #12 If you want to check out all the other amazing items that the other artists have made (and you really should) click below for the full list of participants.
So without further a do, here's what I created. I'd been making a bunch of patchwork drawstring bags at the time I was accepted so I thought that would be perfect.

I lined the bag with waterproof fabric so it's great for wet towels and swimsuits or dirty laundry when travelling.
And of course I couldn't stop there because I had some fabric left over so I made an insulated lunch bag, a reusable straw/cutlery bag and reusable snack and sandwich bags.
This collection of bags is perfect for a day trip to the pool or the beach you've got your towel and swimsuit in one bag and your drinks and snacks in another.
The lunch bag comes with quilted straps and a big fat zipper which makes opening and closing a breeze for even the smallest fingers.
A large boxed bottom on the bag allows items to stand straight up and there's plenty of room in there for lunch and snacks
Plain owl fabric on the back
Quite the handsome set
