New Bag

leaf-stencil-yellowWell, I completed the first item on my list of things to do. I made what I call an hibiscus bag. I wasn’t sure whether to use a hummingbird or a sand dollar design, I finally went with the hibiscus design. It’s quite a simple design and very easy to embroider. I sandwiched interfacing between the bag fabric and the lining fabric, so when it came to embroidering the design I didn’t miss my embroidery hoop at all, the design didn’t pull or pucker at all.

Butterfly BoxesDon’t you just LOVE boxes and containers to put your treasures in? I forgot about these and re-discovered them in a dark corner, whatever shall I put in them? They nest inside each other and have butterflies hanging off them. I bought them for just 2 pounds in the UK, and I love purple!

I’m thinking to make some bucket bags to store my knitting yarn and various other bulky need-to-hand items for my crafting. I’m thinking that this fabric and some lightweight cream colored canvas I found in an old suitcase will be ideal.

Well, that’s enough chat for today, I have to go do some webdesign work. Have a great day!
