Hoffman’s new line, “A Little Retro Vibe” is a collection of mid century modern prints on cotton and bark cloth-like canvas. All of the prints in this line are ideal for bags and apparel. We started with a few of our most popular purses. The retro prints also match many Me + You Indah Batiks line, so finding coordinating lining fabric was a breeze!
Petite Stitched Purse
First, we made one of our favorite purses the Petite Stitched Purse in the grey print and used a bright adobe colored batik to compliment it! The strap on this bag doubles as a closure so that you do not need a secondary closure, however, instructions are included for adding a magnetic snap in your bag. We have a pattern review video that you can watch here! To learn more about the construction of the bag and some additional fabric and embellishment ideas.
Mad Money Mini Bag
Next was the Mad Money Mini Bag which we paired with the flamingo print. The purse has a flap that is just perfect for fussy cutting fabric, and the flamingo fit perfectly. The print also has a guitar motif that we custom cut as well!
Grids and Grommets
The last purse we made was the Grids and Grommets bag. Quilter's love this bag with the grid quilting and strip piecing option. It has been one of our most popular purses for years. We use a 2" quilting grid from Quiltsmart, however you can quilt this bag any way you want! The grommets on this purse make it a truly one-of-a-kind bag that expands to fit anything you may need! Have you ever installed one of these Dritz® Grommets? Here is a tutorial we created to explain the process.
