all in a day's sewing...

so happy to be back in my studio...my second home where no housework or domestic chores exist to distract from my making mission...

 
a reddish pinky felted jumper is carefully cut to shape and I decide on a floral decoration...a bold choice of a lighter pink and some orangey wool fabrics with reddish buttons...seems an odd combination but it works for me...


a little creative machine embroidery...



one of my favourite pincushions ...from Eliza Conway who always has a wonderful stall full of handmade gooodies at Woolfest


 sew on the designer label...!!

choose a lining...and some buttons...more playing with colours




 top stitching the layers together...always a very pleasing moment!


all the leftovers are too enticing and delicious so they go in a bag and one day I WILL have an embellishing machine to turn them into something BEAUTIFUL...nothing is wasted...


and the finished bag has a moment of exitement as it stars in a photo shoot... what do you think?


I am soo happy! and the best bit is I can do it all again tomorrow...hope you've had a lovely day too...

I LOVE the bag! It's so sunny and bright.

I'm feeling a little envious of your crafty days in the studio. I'm busy planning lessons... :(

Happy making,

Ooooo...I'm very excited about the Scarecrow fest. I'm planning on doing half craft and half baking. I've made some cute wrist cuffs and headbands which will hopefully go down well.

Hope the workshop goes well tomorrow. I was tempted by the sewing machine one but haven't quite got to grips with the sewing machine I was given by my Mum-in-law yet. xx
