Crazy Patch Fun

April 22, 2010

Hello I'm afraid I've been really slack at doing posts this month, sometimes life just takes over. But I'm back and I wanted to share my latest sewing project with you. I have been busy making bags, they are such fun, I find as I am making one another idea for another bag is running around in my head. I love that these are so quick and easy, you can let your imagination run wild, which is what I have been doing. I have had such fun today doing crazy patch, so far I only have the front of the bag together ready for all the wonderful embellishment that I am itching to do. I will be able to play with all the fancy stitches on my new machine and all the trims I have collected. Here is a picture of the unfinished front of the bag. Doing crazy patch is such fun you don't have to worry about accuracy, it is total freedom. I was a little worried about my colour choices at first but it has worked out fine. I will post the finnished bag in the next post, hopefully by next week. Here is one I've almost finished, just waiting for the magnetic clasp. This one needs a name, any suggestions? Love to read your comments Happy stitching Sharon

Adding the borders, it always amazes me when the next step is added, how the choices of fabric can change the look of the quilt. This is true for the first inner border, although it is only a small addition it is a game-changer. The applique adds another dimension. Read more about the borders and techniques............
