|Fabric, floral, butterflies and all off white or cream|
Ok, so some of it is literally just enough to make one of those lovely fabric bookmarks that my sewing buddy made me but some of it is big enough to make a purse or bag and one piece is quite big and I'm thinking thinking thinking about that one. One downside is that there are punch holes at the top of the pieces were it was on the hanger thingy. Here's some better pictures:
|About the size of a large cushion with butterflies and fern leaves and flowers|
|Just about enough for a bag, poppies, forget-me-nots and I'm not sure what the other flower is, my horticultural knowledge isn't that great I'm afraid!|
|I think this would be a good clutch bag, same pattern as above|
|Most probably be made into a purse, sparse design of flowers and pretty little leaves|
|Same design as above, destined for a pretty bookmark|
So, although pretty, I think sometimes a little old fashioned, but I'm thinking of spicing things up with some beads and maybe some embroidery and sequins to make the design more spangle-y as, well, I am a magpie! ;)
I've also been working on some bags to sell and will be trying to finish them over the weekend and to get some brooch backs/ribbon on the felt flowers I've been making. I've also been rummaging through my stash of haberdashery/notions depending on which side of the pond you're on for the Sew Weekly lace and notions swap. It's a bit of a Secret Santa thing as we don't know who we're getting an envelope from only who we're sending one to. Problem is I don't have ANY lace. It's just not something that I've accumulated, ribbon, sequins, beads oh yes but lace, none! I'm not sure why, hope my recipient isn't too disappointed.
I've also been scratching my little head over the next Great Exchange with Narcoleptic in a cupboard as I've volunteered to make her clothes if she makes me a quilt. There's no time frame on this as don't want to put pressure on either of us so this will be a relaxed thing. Just pondering the pattern options, but at least I know she loves cord as much as me so a cord skirt is a must! I think I said before on the flickr group for MMM that I should set up an appreciation society or help group or something for cord! ;)
Speaking of which, my favourite cord trousers are soon to need to be refashioned as they're going threadbare between the legs! Eeek! So I'm thinking a skirt with some funky patches to cover the holes/threadbare bits and to make an interesting one off garment and recycle of course!
Ok enough rambling, happy weekend everybody!
