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

I have been missing in action for a few days....... do you get withdrawal symptoms when you don't get to sew?... I do. Seriously I'm addicted!

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
