This was my gift from Amy at American Quilting. Amy is a wonderful person and talented mom, shop owner, quilter and designer. I was flattered she asked me to be involved in her event.
After my trunk show I met some new friends. This is the lovely Lisa. I had to photograph her apron. Isn't it sweet and clever. She used vintage crochet pieces to liven up this terrific apron.
I took a class with Lori, Kim and Amy (I don't think RaeAnn was there? maybe). We all wanted to know how to attach the hardware to make little purses. It was puzzling at first but with Lori's help I got the hang of it.
Our teacher was named Sherri. I wish I had taken pics of all her purses. Oh well. It really wasn't that complicated to make these little purses. I have several hardware sets sitting around here so now I can make bags on my own.My main problem making this purse was using the monofilament thread. I absolutely couldn't control the thread and worse than that, I couldn't see it. Several years ago I had a detached retina and it handicaps my ability to see like I used to be able to see. Anyway I will be making more of these. I used some vintage kitchen fabric for this little purse. I love it. Lori and Kim's purses are cute too, go see them.
I've been posting ahead on my blog so I haven't answered questions, returned emails or comments and read blogs. I'm taking classes this week too so I'm kind of out of the loop this week, again. So be patient with me when I get back as I try to catch up later! Have a nice week everyone.
