a peek inside the sewing room

There are so many fun projects going on here even the birds have to stop and check it out.  

Last season it was the blue bird?  
This season it's the robin.  

Last month was Secret Valentine for Guild. 
 We swap names, make a gift and secretly deliver it to the recipient.
The February meeting is dedicated to the big reveal.
It's fun.

The person I picked noted on her card she is a knitter and seamstress.
I made her a custom canvas bag.

Leather was used to line the straps and spool fabric lined the interior.

Using some handmade silk fabric in my favorite color palette I made a little art quilt for the center, front of the bag.
I heavily quilted and embellished it with sparkly crystals.
-The perfect bag to store yarns for knitting-

Inside the bag I put some additional goodies, including a custom sewing kit.
I love making these.
 Each is different and fully customizable.

This one opens as a heart but folds in half and is small enough to tuck into a project bag.

Thanks for stopping by!
