I made this purse using the pattern from Amy Karol's Bend the Rules Sewing book. I was supposed to do some free motion quilting for the design but I decided to use the decorative stitching on my sewing machine instead. Click on it to check out a closer look at the stitching.
I went on a fabric shopping splurge to fill up the dwindling stash I brought here with me. Yummy!
I also made some flowers using fusible webbing and water soluble fabric. I used directions from a Cloth Paper Scissors article. I learned how to free motion quilt and had fun playing around with it. It was frustrating and not cooperating with me at first, but I finally got it to work. I still need to add buttons or beads to the middle. You can definitely tell I did the red one before the polka dotted one!
