Yet Another Bag




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!

Becca, you guys are so crafty, I wish I had your talent...I am trying to think of something cute for the baby room, but I need some good ideas! Do you sell your purses on etsy? I want one!
