Hello all, on this lovely cool evening after about 10 mils of much needed rain!!!!! I made two little bags in as many days and I'm very pleased with the results. I had some silk dupion at home and made up the purple one first. I then went into Spotlight Tamworth, where they still have some of this silk, and bought 40 cm of four new colours, including the green, which I made up today. This green one is for one of my old friends who has a birthday next week, and her favourite colour is (yes you guessed it) green. I machine embroidered both the front and back, lined the bags with matching cottons; nice green with white dots, and a mauve Liberty fabric for the purple one. The finished measurement of the bags is about 8" x 10". They were very easy to make!!!!
I will be making some more for Christmas gifts too. Hope you like them. Here are a couple of photos!!
DH is in the sewing room now, watching an old Monty Python movie I bought him for his birthday. I won't go in and disturb him as he hardly ever watches movies. Speaking of movies, I want to go and see the Young Victoria this week, hope it is still on. I enjoy Historical novels and movies!!
Must go and check out some more blogs before I go to bed!!
God bless, until next time
