I've been itching to use my sewing machine more; I really want to have a go at making a bag and bought a book recently, but I'm already confused what with having to enlarge the patterns, selvedges, warp & weft, bias binding and that's without making sure I get the right size fabric!! So I've settled on a simple jewellery pouch. There are loads of tutorials on the net and I adapted one to make this pouch. I used two pieces of fabric and some iron on interfacing.
I used a couple of images from The Graphics fairy and Imagenes Vintage and printed onto some linen from Craftycomputerpaper and cut around my spellbinders die then stitched onto the fabric first before sewing together with the lining.
I made the lace flower and added a pearl brad and snap to complete the purse
I really enjoyed making this and I'm sure I'll be making a few more before attempting the bag project as I'm still dithering over what fabric to choose.
Anyway enough waffle from me. Hope you all have a fantastic sunny weekend.
I am entering this for Brag Monday ~ The graphics Fairy
