Do you remember that piece of embellishment I did with Will that looked like some sort of Dr Who costume? Here it is again, with french knots and beads and black velvet sashing and everything. And look now it has been joined by some glitzy log cabin work (my first attempt!) and it's own constellation of sparkly bits. The bag is lined with the shot metallic-ish fabric which I bought for £2 a fat quarter at New Year, hooray! The bag went together really well with a simple technique taught by Fay Maxwell on an embroiderers guild weekend I went on. I like this bag, but I have to say, I bloody hate Bondaweb (used to bond calico to add rigidity to the log cabin side) and I don't like velvet crawling up and away from itself when your trying to sew it. Anyway another one for the stand at the market.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I am always glad to make contact with others who maybe pick up confetti from party tables, keep all those little packets of spare beads and buttons that come attatched to new clothes, who stroke fabric ......for hours...whilst gazing into the middle distance. (I cannot believe I am the only one who is maybe half woman/half magpie!) Please take the opportunity to have a glance at my latest 'fiddlings'. Enjoy fellow fibre freaks!
