Gudrun Sjödén fabric ukulele bags

Gudrun Sjoden ukulele bagsIt's no secret to regular readers of this blog that I'm a fan of Gudrun Sjödén's fabric and clothing designs – last year I was voted Gudrun's Most Colourful Woman in London at the launch of her first UK store. I was therefore delighted to get my hands on some beautiful eco-cottons from her Home furnishing collection. Made from organically grown cotton, these fabrics have a lovely dense weave and are smooth to the touch. They cut beautifully and crisply and were a pleasure to sew on my machine.
     I made two quilted ukulele gig bags using a combination of Zigzag material in bright pink and Rita eco-cotton in spice green. I had enough left over to make two ukulele appliqué book bags – the perfect size for carrying Gudrun Sjödén catalogues.

If you like the results go here to have a look at Gudrun's online shop which is packed with wonderful new print designs from her Spring 2013 collection. I covet everything in the fabulous Cirkus triangle motif fabric and am saving up for a Glimmer raincoat!
