Springy Stripes and Flower Purse – Amy Butler Fabrics


I used different lovely Amy Butler fabrics for the exterior of the purse and a coordinating yellow/white pattern cotton for the lining.  It keeps its form nicely because the interfacing is a medium weight fleece.  A handmade felt flower pin sits pretty on the purse or it can be removed and worn to bring together the look.  It is another purse I designed and sewed.  Spring IS coming and what a great way to feel feminine.  This pretty piece is available in my shop. Felt Flower Pin

Teddy Bear Wallhanging

GTeddy Bear Wallhanging

Last month I made a chenile type Teddy Bear Wallhanging in the same method as the chenille type baby blanket I made in June 2007.  The method was the same using 5 panels of fabric, sewing and cutting but its only 20″ square.  The more you put it into the washing machine and drier the more the cuts open up creating more chenille.  The back has two little rings for hanging it on the wall.  It is ideal for the little child or teddy bear lover.  You can find it in my shop. 00011.jpg
