Does anyone have any idea why I purchased this?
I was digging through a box of fabric (shocking!) and found an unopened bag. In it was this, some twill tape and a few fat quarters. I know I bought it for a specific purpose. I just can't remember what the heck it was!
I have been working every day in the studio. I have so many projects to finish before the holidays (and for the love of Pete, will everyone please stop telling me how few days there are until Christmas?!?) so I get up between 3 and 3:30 every morning and work until it is time to get ready for work. I love the extra hours on the weekends but I also need some time to play so I made time this past weekend and spent it with my quilty sister. No more lazy weekends until after November 15th!
I just "discovered" fabric roses. I have seen many tutorials and finally got around to making my first one just a few hours ago.
Pretty, huh? I used a strip from a jelly roll, folded it in half lengthwise and then gathered the raw edge. I just scrunched up a bit in the center and then started rolling and taking random stitches along the bottom to hold it all together. I had a piece in mind when I made it. I used it to take this perfectly nice, ordinary purse and make it a little "special".
That may (or may not) be the final placement. I really like the deep red against the black and white fabric. As I look at in the photo, I am not crazy about the pocket running smack up against the bottom fabric. This may call for a revision. What do you think?
