I see I have 95 people who have registered to follow my blog – I think I’ll have a giveaway as a thank you. A prize for the 100th follower (please leave a comment so I know who is the 100th) and also another prize draw for any one else who leaves a comment. I’m not sure what they’ll be yet – it will have to wait until after my Bunbury workshops. I’ll announce the winners in 2 weeks time – Friday 18th June.
The bag, front above, back below, is made from scraps of fabric. The base is leftover pieces of rayon dress fabric, scrunched and ironed onto vilene then free machine stitched. The lace is heat transfer dyed curtain fabric. I did the base fabric ages ago with a bag in mind but wasn’t quite sure how to do it. The top section was a later piece of work. I was looking through my pile of unfinished things when it suddenly occurred to me that these 2 would go together, and this is the result.
Unlike many people whose blogs I read, I don’t stress about unfinished things. I often just start something without a definite result in mind, or just as an experimental piece, or to use a collection of scraps, but I find that these usually end up turning into something and are often very useful when deadlines are looming.
