mySewnet - Flower Power

This year is my second year of flower farming, what does that mean?   Well, I grow many stems of beautiful flowers for bouquets and sell them at Farmer's Markets and other events.

I load up early Saturday mornings and needed a bag to put several of my items in.  Well, if I am going to make a bag, then I am am going to make it specific for flowers. 

I knew in mySewnet I could design just what I wanted.  Here is the design I made using so many amazing features in this software

I started with an applique design and selected on that is just a running stitch.  Now above it shows pink but that is just showing fabric.  When I stitched out the design, I just did not place the fabric so my bag fabric shows.  My next step was to take the letter "O" out of flower and substitute this petal design for the letter "O".  I added a small daisy flower for the middle of the "O"

Next I went through all the flower Super Designs and used trial and error for the correct size to fit inside the letter.  When I could I used the straight line feature in Encore to fill in the letter.  This kept the designs nice and straight.

To finish it off I added the word power in script.

This bag is my own design, measuring out 5 inches on each side of the design, 3 inches to the top and 5 inches to the bottom (allowing for the bottom).  I cut 2.5" squares out of the corners to make the box bottom.

Here is a tutorial for a pieced bag but I used the same idea.  I used Soft and Stable to make a more sturdy bag, placing it behind the denim fabric and basting around all the edges.  I also interfaced the quilting cotton lining and the handles with SF-101.

I am ready for the next market!


  1. That is awesome. I can't wait until we buy a home so I can fill my yard with flowers.

  2. Great 'appropriate' bag for it's purpose. I don't know how you have the time to do all you do. Or the energy!
