Last Christmas my friend Bjørg gave a challenge as her Christmas gift to me and some other friends. Some fabrics, embroidery floss and a big button. We could add or remove something from the gift. The challenge was to make what ever we wanted and show it this summer.
And yesterday I made this cute sewing purse. Have to admit that I am really pleased with it. I have used all the fabrics from the challenge, I just added the background fabric and the stitchery. The stitchery is a free pattern and you can find it here.
I even made a little pocket inside the purse to keep my scissor and needles. Had to handstitch it down because I did not want the seams to show on the front. This is one purse I will use all the time.
Two days left of my summer vacation. Going to spend them in my sewingroom. Plans for today is to make small purses and to use every piece of the fabrics that are left from the Christmas gift challenge. As you see I have already added some other stticheries and background fabric.
Saying for today:
