Sewing,that's what I have been doing all weekend, it's amazing how much one can accomplish with out any summer distractions,like 3 teens on vacation,cooking for 5,and the laundry!!!!need i say more? I was so afraid to be lonely and I am secretly enjoying every second....I feel a little guilty...
Anyway,I finally made a tote using some of my beautiful Liberty of London (Tana lawn) fabrics that have been lying around forever. I love them so much but I am always afraid to use them, they are soooo expensive that I am afraid i'll ruin them....
these fabrics always reminds me of my mom and me at the "Liberty" store in London when I was 15!!
I used 2 different fabrics for the tote,with interfacing because the fabric is so fine, I love what came out and will be making some more this week to post on Etsy.
I moved all my stuff in and have been using it for 3 days and it's so cuteeee!!
Then yesterday I finished making two great big totes with some other wonderful wild looking canvasy fabric i found
I use interfacing here too and it I love the results! I made extra pockets on the sides and rounded off the bottom of the bag so it looks a little different and softer, boy was that a lot of work!!! I finished at 2am!!! but I made 2 of them and posted them on etsy (just sold one yesterday 6/26/07) yey!!!
More sewing to come!!!
