So I made, not one, but two strip bags in reds. I liked the shape, but I think I wish I had placed the strips vertically like the green one. Here are the pics...
When I finished making these bags, I had a few things to put away. Which leads me to my next topic. I started to look through my garage sale finds (embroidered napkins, handkerchiefs, table runners, etc.) and I found this.
I love this! It is just beautiful. I do not know if you can tell, but the white background is see-through. So, it got me thinking of what to do with it. I decided to sew down the sides after folding it into 3 sections.
I am going to fill it with lavender and use it as a sachet in my drawers. But when I get tired of that, I think I will use it as a small pillow cover, you know the ones your husband hates to have on the bed?
And the last thing I want to talk about is my progress on my red circle quilt. I finally found a border fabric I liked, a light pink, almost blush fabric. Now I am in the process of laying out the vines, leaves and flowers on it. I love laying it out, but hate drawing the pattern on the white paper. Why? I don't know why, I just do.
