Do you remember this beautiful Lecien fabric that I bought from Sew and So's at Bungay? I made some cosmetic bags with it last week, and was patiently waiting for some velvet ribbon/lace to arrive from Little A Designs so I could make some more.....
.....well it arrived a few days ago, and it really is simply gorgeous - my favourite is the green velvet ribbon/purple lace, but it was the pale pink colourway that I used today.....
.....and here is the completed bag, nestling among the snowdrops in my garden! I used lots of rows straight line quilting half and inch apart on the front piece of the bag, and a cross-hatch design on the backing piece, and used a Clover Hera marker to mark the fabric. I used a variegated yellow King Tut quilting thread, shade 982. The pattern is based on "Anna's Sminkepung" by AnnAKa. This is going to be posted off to a friend in a couple of days - I wonder if she can guess who she is!!!
