Kona Club Challenge - Ballet Tote by Krista from Poppyprint

Krista from Poppyprint took the Kona Club Challenge this month. Krista used the colors we sent out in April 2013 for Kona Club and made this adorable Ballet Tote. We hope you enjoy this tutorial and make one of your own!

We are giving away the fat quarters that Krista used in this tutorial so be sure to leave a comment on this post to win!

Krista Hennebury sews and quilts in her little home studio in North Vancouver. She began quilting 12 years ago as a creative outlet after her two children came along.  She blogs at sharing tutorials and travel photography, teaches workshops, runs a popular day-retreat business and is an active member of the Lions Gate Quilters Guild and the Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild. Her work has appeared in Quilters Connection, Fat Quarterly and Stitch magazines as well as Modern Quilt Blocks. She's currently working on an e-book sharing her knowledge with others who wish to start a retreat business in their community.

Finished size 8" x 12" x 2"
It's not just back to school this fall - it is back to ballet, too! Send your ballerina off in style with this sweet Ballet Tote featuring Sew Sisters' lovely April Kona Solids FQ set.  I designed this tote with my sister and nieces in mind; they've recently taken over Demi Pointe, a dance shop in Charlottetown, PEI. I've adapted a machine applique technique by Karen Soltys in "Applique Made Easy" from Rodale to make the scripted heart.  If the applique is too daunting, just skip it, or add a fusible appliqued monogram instead!

Our Biggest Sale of the Year is Back!

Here are a few pointers when you shop the Birthday Sale online

If you've been to one of our sales before you'll know that we have a high volume of shoppers - both online and in the store. We will do everything we can to fill out your orders quickly and efficiently. You can help us do this by keeping a few things in mind when you shop online:

  • Orders are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Please select alternate fabrics in case yours sells out - things go really quickly on sale day.
  • Please be sure to provide specific instructions in the box titled : If we do not have the full quantity of an item on your order. For example you might say: " If you do not have the full 6 metres of the blue fabric please cancel that item but send the rest"; or "If you do not have the full 6 metres of the blue fabric cancel the whole order";  or "If you do not have the full 6 metres of the blue fabric please send a similar fabric of the same price. "
  • Please note that we will send what we have if you do not add specific instructions on your order.

We will have all hands on deck to ship your orders out to you as quickly and accurately as we possibly can.
