Olive the Ostrich bags

Squeee! How cute are these adorable little bags that Melanie over at the Crafty Cupboard made using my Olive the Ostrich fabric?!

Robert Kaufman and I sent her some fabric from my Olive the Ostrich collection (shipping in November 2012) to play with and some to give away! I initially fell completely in love with this uber-amazing Tufted Tweets quilt (sigh...isn't it phenomenal!?) Melanie made. And recently she posted about her her adorable pink and green nursery awning, which is simply brilliant. So needless to say, I knew she'd create something wonderful with the Olive fabric. And of course she did! :)

Using the Ostrich fabric, she whipped up these adorable little bags and I'm so smitten with the way they turned out. Her sweet girls use them to hold their Pixie Dust. And who doesn't need a sassy bag to hold their Pixie Dust I ask you? :) I love this shot with their own Ostrich friend. 

Melanie is hosting a giveaway for a FQ set of Olive + she's also included a link to the tutorial for the bag (by In Color Order), so hop on over there before Sunday August 26 and enter to win!

Super cute! I've actually got a bit of your donkey fabric cut out to make these very bags for my nieces for Christmas! I plan on filling them with rubber stamps and ink pads to use when writing to their pen-pals. :)

Very cute bags as is your new line of fun fabric. Those Flamingos have such cute legs. Just wish I had "flamingo legs" too!

I love her tufted tweets quilt too. I just received my perfectly perched order and I can't wait to make something out of it. Olive is just as cute as the rest.
