a blue dala horse bag

Just before Christmas, I saw the Dala Horse patchwork block from Moda Bakeshop , and I knew I had to make one! To make it less Christmassy and more all season, I made mine in blue

just like Miss C.'s horse that my sister sent her from Dalarma, Sweden.
I sewed it in linen and solid cotton, following the directions from Moda, I made the small version:

it is a pretty easy patchwork, but quite striking with the solid blue and the texture of the natural linen.
I sewed some border around the block, and made a little bag out of it, loosely following this pattern from Sotak Handmade, it has been my favorite way to make little bag/pouch lately.
Happy sewing!
