Weekend Handbag

Hi Everyone!!

I've been working on this handbag for a few weeks now and today I am ready to share the finished handbag.

It was made from three FQ Vintage sheet which I bought from Ironsea Etsy shop. The owner of the shop, Ms. Jeni  was kind enough to put together combination of 10FQ Vintage fabric. I  never use Vintage sheet in making bags before and this is my first.

This is how I did the center of the bag using the scraps from the same fabric.

Scraps fabric that I used for the center.

This is how the front bag looks like after the center was done.

It includes with internal pocket for keeping small items.

 The finished size of the main body of the bag is 12"height  x 13" length.  It is a shoulder length handbag using medium weight fusible and the pattern is my own. Like many other bags that designed by me it comes with a curvey bottom. This is the first bag designed by me that comes with a flap.   Here my daughter modelling it to give you an idea of the bag size.

 I am very happy with the result.  I submitting this handbag as my entry to Purse Palooza contest hosted by Sara at Sew Sweetness.  Hop over to Purse Palooza flickr group and see what other talented sewers are doing.

Happy Creating and Sewing!!

Garden Steps: Block #07 and #08

Hi Everyone!!

I am so happy today to accomplished my mission to finished both Garden Steps blocks during the week end.
 This is how my block #07 looks like.

I used back stitch for the flowers and  stem stitch for the leaves outlines.  The center of the flowers and the leaves, I used satin stitch.

and this is the Garden Steps block #08 looks like. I used a lot of back stitch for this block especially for the bird house.

 For the butterfly I used satin stitch for the center and back stitch for the outline. The center of the flowers and the bird's eye I used french knot stitch.

Happy Stitching!!

Anne handbag

Hi Everyone!!

 The first bag that I’ve finished sewing in the month of June is the Anne handbag. The pattern is from Clover and Violet.

 I have had this pattern for a while now and I am taking the opportunity to try this pattern for submission in the 2012 Purse Palooza contest hosted by Sara at Sew Sweetness.  I also share this handbag at Ellison Lane Quilts as my entry in the Summer sewing contest.

I used Ruby fabric by Bonnie and Camille. The bright color print and the design combination are just perfect for the sunny day.  These fabric were bought from Sew Lux Fabrics & Gifts. They have a lot of fabric choices in their store and selected  fabrics are on  SALE currently.  

The handbag comes with a pocket.  Here is a view of the inside pocket.  It is big enough to fit in my coin purse and my cell phone. 

 Basically this is not the first pattern from Clover and Violet that I've sewn.  The first Clover & Violet pattern that I've tried was the Emma Clutch pattern.  Personally I would say that the pattern was well written and easy to follow.
Happy Sewing!!
