Pretty Tunic and Panama Purse

Here is the tunic I made a couple of weeks ago....
I took an extra couple of inches off the sides to give a better fit since I don't like super loose tunics. Believe it or not this is not embroidery.... its a decorative stitch on my Pfaff machine!!! One of the "maxi stitches"!! Love it!!


On the cuff too....


This is an Ellen Medlock pattern... I love a messenger bag for everyday use. Its perfect for everything I carry, plenty of room for extra pockets and big enough for a book (in case I'm waiting on my son to get done with one of his lessons)
I used a faux leather type fabric, appliqued on a Mola' I bought in Panama....



And lined it in a fabric covered in hearts!!! lol!!! Hey.. it was close to Valentines day when I was making it!



On the embroidery machine I'm working on a wool navy coat I bought at a thrift store... I've had it for awhile but couldn't figure out exactly how to re make it.
Then I saw this in a Jenny Haskins magazine and knew... thats the direction I'm going with the coat!


Picked out my designs... and the lining in the coat..... here's what I have done so far....




I can't wait to get it done.... I'm in need of another warm coat since this year has been so cold!

No other sewing lately.... I've been working on organizing the house... mainly the kitchen, laundry room and my 3 sewing rooms!
Then I plan to re decorate my bed room and kitchen... oh and organize the office (yuk!)
I do hope to squeeze in some sewing in between.
And still working on my style and coloring project... its really so fun!!! I'm making more progress!! More on that later.
