Hello, Stitchers! Today is an exciting day because I get to share a beautiful new wintery fabric collection that was designed by my talented and sweet friend, Minki Kim! I hope you are following Minki on Instagramher feed is full of amazing designs, gorgeous bouquets, and loads of sunny optimism!

 Retro Mama | Winter Tales by Minki Kim
Winter Tales features Minki's signature colors and cute illustrations: delightful foxes, penguins, and bunnies frolic together in the snow and they almost make me miss snowy weatheralmost!

For my first project, I made a pouch using the zipper installation from my Bound-All-Around Pouch. I altered the shape of the bag to make it HST friendly.

The cream tree print is such a gorgeous low volume backdrop for this HST project pouch. I love the sweet, uplifting sentiments in the design! The deep blue snowflake triangles are such a happy pop of color.

Of course I had to make a few pear and apple ornaments with this cheery stack of prints! (A little reminder that all my patterns are 20% off in my Etsy shop until August 1!)

And to wrap up this post (hah!), I made some sweet drawstring gift bags. I used the Weebrawbag pattern by Laura ZuckerkussI've seen these bags all over Instagram and could no longer resist! The pattern is easy to follow and I was able to stitch up both bags in an afternoon. These are the small size and I made the pockets a little shorter than the pattern directions suggest to show more of the pretty floral vines prints.
