Creativity






Finally, something finished. After all that complaining about not getting anything done yesterday morning, I buckled down in the afternoon and did what I had planned on doing all along: sewed all afternoon. I used the fabrics I had been looking for and did something completely new: raw edge applique. Lots of fun, no rules and I ended up with a little bag for me (mostly because I'm working out the bugs again).

In addition, I finished several more pyramid bags in 2 different sizes on Sunday and ............... I sold 5 bags. I was so thrilled when my friend handed me the checks this morning. I'm having fun sewing and making things, but it's even more fun when somebody else likes what I make.

The pictures show the pyramid bags and the back and front of the bag I made yesterday as well as a close-up to show how I did it and some of the fancy stitches I played with.

Congrats on selling the bags! You've got a fancy sewing machine to make those stitches on the raw edge bag!

Not that fancy. It's a little portable Janome. The fancy stitches are just a nice extra.

I really really like those Pyramid bags!
Would you mind if I added a link to you on my blog?

Not at all, Katie. I'll return the favor as soon as I figure out how to do it.
