I've had a very productive day sewing, and this was the first project of the day - using a selection of Lecien fabrics and some orange velvet ribbon trimmed with lace. The plainer fabric is textured, and worked beautifully for the project that I was planning, and used a variegated Gutterman Sulky thrread for the quilting, and a plain Mettler thread in the bobbin. The lining fabric was the left over backing from my brown batik quilt, and is by Moda. It really was the perfect match. So - quilted and labelled...
...another cosmetic bag ready to use as a gift when I need one in a hurry! This pattern is by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa, and although the instructions are in Norwegian it is easy to make by following the diagrams. I have a few more Lecien fabric scraps and lace that I need to use up, and I'll show pictures of that project later on!
