As you can hopefully see, it turned out pretty well! This was the first small patchwork project I did, and I think I did a decent job of picking coordinating patterns for the fabric. I'm also glad I decided to go with the red & white fabric for the border--I feel like it draws everything together.
I used a plain linen for the inside to contrast with the colorful patchwork outside, and added some lace accents to the inner pockets as well. :D
I also can't resist including a shot of my sajou scissors. I got them in France and think they are one of the prettiest things I own--as well as being a really excellent tool.
Anyway, I'm excited to try more patchwork projects in the future--they are so cute!
