For that special biker (your child, your grand, your mother, yourself?) who has everything, how about a pretty quilted bike bag.
This was a fun project, made for Brother’s blog, Stitching Sewcial, in celebration of National Bike Month. Detailed photo instructions are included in the tutorial post.
I’ve loved this design since it was first included on a Brother card, EDB LG1. Now it is available as a single design at iBroidery.com for 5×7 frames.
The scenic design has white negative space, which would have made the stitching disappear into the fabric print. So the file was converted to an applique’ and stitched on sky blue pique’. The blog post gives directions for converting this and other framed designs to applique’.
My husband used to take the children long bike hikes.
One of their favorite destinations was Hontoon Island State Park, 15 miles from home. They would relax there at a little snack bar overlooking the St.John’s River and enjoy a cold drink.
Then they would call me to pick them up. After the first seven miles, I’m sure they would have loved to reach into a bag like this for a bottle of water to quench their thirst.
This project is unique in that it is gender neutral and age appropriate for anyone who rides a bike.
Did you know May 18th is officially Ride your Bike to Work Day? Please tell us about it if you do.
Happy Bike Month!
