Anyway, onto the real meat of this post. I've been busy, and have almost finished my beach gifts. And I found the Sew Much Ado blog somewhere in my blog wanderings and decided to participate in the We Did It Wednesday.
Here's my entry:
These are the appliqued tote bags that I kept talking about for my nieces. It's hot pink canvas, with lime green polka dot cotton appliques, sewed on with bright blue thread and bright blue cotton webbing handles.
The above are closeups of the appliques. Complete with a crazy shadow formed from the lens of the camera blocking the flash. I would normall make better quality pictures, but since we're leaving for the beach on Saturday and I still have one skirt and two Towel Rolls to make before we go, you're lucky to get a blog post!
I'm really proud of how these turned out. Especially since this is my first attempt at applique.
This is what you get when Hubs is away on business, I have two days off completely to myself, a few glasses of sweet tea and several midnight mini Moon Pies.
