As we mentioned on Monday, the Stowe bag not only makes a great gift, but it’s also a great reusable package for a gift! We chose 4 fabrics that would look just as good everyday as they would under the tree to get your inspiration flowing. You can accent your bag with contrasting binding or use the main fabric for the binding for a one tone look.
- Kokka Tentensen Circles
- Erin Dollar Double Dash Essex
- Robert Kaufman Essex Homespun
- Jen Hewett Imagined Landscapes Canvas (this is the fabric we’re using for our bag!)
There are so many fabric options for the Stowe bag, pretty much any fabric from quilting cotton and linen for a less structured bag to canvas will work well. You might also want to try shopping your fabric stash! The small bag uses just under 1 yard of fabric which makes it a pretty good stash buster. I just checked our fabric cabinet and there are so many options for Stowes in there, I don’t even know why I ordered fabric for this sew-along!
