Lately I've been working on a few long term applique projects,
cleaning out and rearranging my sewing room,
and just generally. getting used to not being a care taker.
It's a more difficult transition than I thought it would be.
This little project was a blessing!
Working with the taupe fabrics gave me
serenity and peace of mind.
Feeling a bit more focused!
Mt sister had a special birthday yesterday ~70!
SO something special was definitely needed!
It started with a Yoko Saito kit ~ but I didn't have the time
or patience to put in the zipper and actually follow the directions!
With the appliqué was completed
~taking longer than expected and coming out smaller than expected~
I added a small panel of fabric to create a clutch type bag
with a hidden invisible magnetic snap for the closure!
Entire back once opened
Opened with the lining in my sister's
favorite color ~ RED!
This ended up becoming a fun little project,
might just have to make one for myself!
Sister's birthday present was a BIG hit!
She Loved it!!
Have a great Quilty Day and enjoy the process!
