For getting Nato's gift to her safe and sound.
As well as sending the magazine she'd won, I also whipped up a quick bag to put it in.
The fabric is from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden line. I was keen on using red that morning, I think it was because of that habanero chilli I ate the night before.
I used the Simple Bag pattern in Joelle Hoverson's book Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts.
You can see several of the projects on the back here - Nato's bag is bottom middle.
Looking at Nato's site I could see she also likes beading, so I sent her some things from my stash to experiment with. There is some chalchedony (tubes), amazonite (ovals), aquamarine (rondelle/button shape), smoky quartz and the briolettes are a synthetic quartz in a deep forest/sea green.
Have fun Nato!
