By now, you may have heard the words “Jolly Bar” tossed around our blog and website, but you may be unfamiliar with exactly what a Jolly Bar is! Exclusive to Fat Quarter Shop, Jolly Bars are collections of 5″ x 10″ cuts of fabric. The projects for these little bars are unlimited! Luckily for you, we’ve packed a whole bunch of fun projects into The Jolly Bar Book!
Dying to find out what projects the Jolly Bar precuts inspire? Take a look inside the cover!
Can we just say that this book is truly adorable and jam-packed with great tips from some of our favorite quilty gals (including Kimberly!). There are 23 thoughtful gifts and projects ranging from quilts, kids toys, home decor, storage cases, and what we sewed up today, the envelope clutch. This simple envelope clutch is so modern and is designed for so many uses. Our crafty staff, Daniar, chose to make her version from the Playful collection by Melody Miller for Cotton + Steel, along with its coordinating canvas print.
This clutch is perfect for toting around Daniar’s sketchbooks and art supplies.
We would like to thank Heidi for inviting us to be a part of this wonderful tour and don’t forget to follow along to see other simple, beautiful, yet practical projects to inspire you!
