Review The Applique Society - September 1, 2012
It always makes us feel good to know that we are doing something to help the environment. C&T Publishing’s new Honey Quilt – Eco Messenger Bag does just that. The bag is printed in a bold, colorful geometric style, based on a hexagonal quilt design called “Honey” by Elizabeth Hartman from her book, “Modern Patchwork” and published by Stash Books. This bag is perfect to tote all your sewing supplies, class projects or just about anything else you need to take from one place to another. The bag itself has a very comfortable adjustable shoulder strap, a large interior divided pocket with a Velcro closure. I loaded mine down with books, papers, quilting supplies such as my rotary cutter, rulers, fabric and anything else I might need to attend class. I even tossed in my Kindle. The bag easily carried all the weight of these supplies. The wide strap fit comfortably on my shoulder and helped distribute the weight, which made it quite easy to carry around. How does this help the environment you might ask? This durable, waterproof and tear-resistant bag is made form 100% recycled plastic water bottles. Take this along next time you visit your favorite quilt shop and save on plastic shopping bags. It feels very soft and pliable and is affordably priced at $9.95. Look for this at your local quilt shop or order online from C&T Publishing at http://www.ctpub.com.
