I haven't done a lot of Arty Stuff lately but did make this little quilt to send for a swap. It has gone to Patsy in the U.S.A. I used the embellishe to make a felted base and then we had to use Machine embroidery and Free Motion Embroidery too. This one is of an old Hotel in the Outback at Sunset.
Yes I know another Bag.!! This one is really neat, a bit tricky to follow the pattern instructions, but that could just be me ! I am visual, I love the way when you pull the bag open, you have this really big bag to put all your good stuff In !!but it doesn't dissapear , It's easy to find what your looking for. Hayley wants one for a baby bag. She picked the fabrics from the shop the other day, Her first forray into a quilt shop.!! She didn't know it could be so difficult to choose 3 matching fabrics..........
Here is the Charm Party Tote !! Its a nice size and quite firm as they use pellon on the lining and the bag, I also put a fabric covered base into the bottom so it will stand on its own.! Has 2 big pockets inside and i love the little envelope pocket on the outside.
I thought it was time to add a couple of new projects Here.! These fabrics are so pretty. It's called Maypole By Moda, and the pattern is the Charm Party Tote by Penny Sturges, easy to make from all those yummy charm packs .
