First to see the first 2 tops I made for the Month of Tops sew along click here: My TOPS
Now.... I took this pic last week. I actually fished it TODAY! I have never quilted before... not really.... which is kinda wrong since my mom is a quilter! But I've always been more into clothing and I would have never made this if it wasn't our project/class for Pfaff club at sewing Machine etc. here in Knoxville. You know what... I loved making it! It was fun! Relaxing, even!!
Here's a closer look at my sad quilting! But its good for a 1st timer!! I think..... lol!! We embellished the pumpkins using decorative stitches, couching, buttons, rhinestones... whatever! Lots of fun! I can't wait till our next class!
Purses... I was in much need of purses this year. As you know if you've been reading my blog for long I'm not a fan of making purses... but the purses I want to buy cost stupid money. So yeah, I make my purses!
The purse below is the L2 Bag by sewing workshop. Made from upholstery fabric I bought... somewhere ;-) embellished with beads and chains from jo anns.
I wanted a purse big enough for my laptop, a crochet project and all my other purse essentials.. this purse fit the bill.... perfect for traveling! plus I think its cute. Its full of all different sizes of pockets!!
This purse is Circle Bag from Square Rose. I was looking for this shape of bag after seeing a few Chanel bags from the Couture winter collection. Karl's bags were a bit bigger and made of faux fur (which I would like to do before winter is over!) they had a draw string appearance on the runway but without seeing up close and personal I have no clue if they were! But this pattern fit the shape I was looking for. Good pattern too!!
CROCHET! How I LOVE my crochet! Some nights I crochet until my hand hurts (which is a really really long time! ) and I still can't stop (Bald Man says theres something wrong with me...)
I finished this a couple of months ago... it was meant to be worn this summer.... on cool nights on a patio somewhere... It didn't quite make it. But next spring/summer.. it'll be ready!
Now this is part of my fall/winter wardrobe! AND I made up this pattern!!! and I have no ideal what I did..... because I didn't write anything down..... but still I'm extremely happy with this! And though I hate cold weather I am looking forward to it being cold enough to wear this!!! Its really cute with a tank top or turtle neck
