Yo-Yo Bag #1

I finished the yo-yo bag I was working on.  It measures 12" x 12" and I added a lining which ended up being the back drop for the yo-yo's.  Each yo-yo is separated by a bead, sewn on by hand.  I put on leather handles and now it is all done.

Black Evening Bag

I always have a problem when I am getting dressed to go out at night.  I have a lot of black/gold handbags, but I always seem to need a plain one or one with silver.  So I got out some black fabric and quilted it using a cross-hatch pattern.  Then I cut it to a decent size.  I added a flap with a magnetic snap closure.  At first I was going to leave it as an envelope bag, but found some silver chain that I bought a while ago and added it.  I also had purchased a pin from Express a long time ago and thought it would be perfect for this bag.  So here is what I ended up with:

Front

Back

It measures 10" wide, 7" height, and 2" depth.  And now I am ready to go out for the night.

Finished My Scrappy Stars Quilt

I finally finished the Scrappy Stars Quilt I was working on when I went on our guild's retreat last year.  It ended up being a twin size quilt, based upon how much of the beige fabric I had.


This is not the best picture, but it was all I could do at the time.  What is the first thing that you see?  I notice the beige colored crosses, but if I look at it long enough, I can see the multi-colored stars and then I see the cross hatching.  It is quite interesting.

Have a great day everyone.
