I made more coin purses of which most of them are now sold (big smile!)
I also got an order to make a boyish purse so I made one using my sailboat fabric, if memory serves its Robert Kaufman fabric, apologies if I am wrong
Most of my purses at the moment are lined with Kaffe Fasset dotty fabrics which I picked up last year at the Knitting and Stitching Show.
I do want to show you my favourite though..
Some Japanese Little Red Riding Hood fabric. I embroidered around her ladyship, picked out her eyes with black seed beads and the point of her hat with mixed red seed beads. The reverse of this purse has a leaf same as in the above photo and again using seed beads I picked out the little dots. Ah here is a photo it's easier to show you..
During the week, I decided too to make something for myself! You see when I am commuting to and from work on the train I can often be seen doing some sewing (small projects) and I usually use my drawstring bag to hold my bits and pieces, but this time I thought I would treat myself and so I made my own larger pouch!
I used some of my Heather Ross fabric, the Owl and the Pussycat. See how it takes my hexagons, thread, thimble and scissors comfortably? I love it, can't stop waiving it around! Ahem!!
Finally the reason for all these hexagons is that I am in the process of making my first cushion. Tomorrow I plan on purchasing a cushion filler. Because the hexagons are quite large I want this to be a large enough cushion that you can
I have just placed my hexagons on an existing cushion as a guide, I am nearly there!
Thanks for reading and have a good Tuesday!
