Still Sewing But Can't Share....Yet
I took 3 days off at the beginning of the week to visit some great friends. They even took me to a great quilting shop and I bought more "souveniers" (That's what you call fabric pieces you purchase when you are away from home.)
I have been sewing since I got home because I got behind on some orders and now a couple more orders have come in. I think that makes me even "more behinder". I completed a bag that I was a tester for but I can't show that to you until June. Trust me, it is a great shaped bag that I think you will love.
I also completed a wallet for my sister. She picked out some upholstery fabric that I had and decided she wanted a Necessary Wallet by Janelle at Emmaline Bags but because the print is so large, she did not want the raised trim around the front. She also wanted a thumb latch instead of a turn lock. I was excited by that because I have been wanting to do one like that. I included the wristlet strap and the shoulder strap.
I'll give it to her when I see her on Easter. Did I tell you that I sewed it on my new.....wait for it.......
semi-industrial sewing machine!! I'll post about it this coming week but I feel like I am starting to get used to it already.
