nightfall megan + lola

This past weekend I had a great pleasure to play with Maureen Cracknell's not yet released fabric Nightfall. I absolutely adore the prints and colors in this fabric collection. So, of course I was more than excited to say yes when Maureen asked if I'd make a bag or two using a combination of AGF denim and Nightfall for her Quilt Market booth.

And thus on Friday evening, just about an hour after the mailman dropped off the fabric, I was already excitedly stitching up this Megan bag. I think she is gorgeous, wouldn't you agree? 

I didn't have much fabric to work with (as the strike offs designers receive aren't that huge), so I decided to go with a patchwork top. And, I love it so, so very much. 

And then, since I had a bit more scraps left over, I decided to make a pieced Lola pouch. These little patchwork squares finish at 1" so they were quite fiddly to work with, but definitely worth it.

I used some more AGF denim for contrasting bottom band, zipper binding, as well as the lining. This was my first time working with AGF denim fabric and I was pleasantly surprised at how soft and not at all stiff it is. I'll be definitely getting more of this denim for my future projects.

I have one more bag using Nightfall canvas in the works, I'll be sure to show it to you soon.

Oh, and in case you'd like to make a Megan tote or Lola pouch of your own, both patterns are available  for purchase at my etsy shop.

Wishing you all a wonderfully creative and happy week. Svetlana


  1. Beautiful combination of fabrics.

  2. I'm already in love with AG's denim studio, and they are the perfect partner's with Nightfall! They show off your gorgeous makes beautifully! Jxo

  3. Gorgeous Svetlana! Those little shots of mustard with the turquoise and denim. The aqua zipper is also a lovely contrast to the lining! You really do have the knack in combining fabric...

  4. Oh, what a lovely set! Maureen chose well when she asked you to sew for her!
