Using my scraps

You know I have finished my Yoko Saito purse. Having a lot of scraps left from the sewing, I planned to make a makeup purse to go with it.

Starting to cut and sew today together with my two good sewing helpers. Both Frida and Rusken loves to sit/sleep on the sewingtable. Rusken is a naughty boy sometimes, stealing my fabric stripes and running away with them.

This is the makeup purse I made from the scraps. It is made in the same style as the Yoko Saito purse. But this time I sewed the log cabin together with machine. But I handquilted all the stripes. And guess what.......no scraps left from this project. Just a tiny few ones that are thrown in the waste basket.
Voila....a makeup purse that goes with my Yoko Saito purse.
Now I can go partying.


I've had my DS and his girlfriend visiting this weekend, and Rusken really had a good time being spoiled.

Saying for today:

Our children teach us what life is all about.

Lovely make up purse and beautiful fabrics !! Where could I found this pattern ? Or maybe you've made your own pattern ? Very good job !

I love how you use every scrap and make such beautiful things! And all cats love to be spoiled! My Dad had a cat that would scratch you if you picked him up, but if you didn't want to have anything to do with him - well then he would sit on your lap for hours! Cheers! Evelyn

Love the cosmetic bag you made out of scraps. It's amazing how our little scraps add up. You did a great job using them up.

Great use for those scraps. They certainly do have a "second life" now. A great one.
I love both, the bag and the makeup purse, they have such an elegant colour and carry a professional finishing.Great work !
