Taupe fabrics ... love the serenity

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!
