Amy Barickman loves upcycling vintage textiles and thrift shop finds. Her new pattern the Fold & Go Folio is an ideal design for showcasing your favorite fabrics. She fussy cut the rose from a vintage hankie and lined the case with a feedsack print. The handy travel case pattern offers two sizes and options for both jewelry and sewing storage. Amy loves her Oliso mini iron and demonstrated it in our booth at QuiltCon. Watch a video she filmed that shows you all the storage features the pattern offers and several versions of the Fold & Go Folio stitched up in both vintage and modern fabrics.
