I spent Sunday morning busy with my Bernina and a few scraps of batik fabrics that had been left over from a quilt I'd made a few years ago. A colleague had requested a small pouch for her daughter, the only remit was purple. Well these batiks were perfect for what I had in mind! I simply pieced the scraps together, and then quilted them very simply in rows half an inch apart, using the edge of the walking foot as a guide...
...a little bit of lilac lace trimming was carefully machined into place. Once it was completed, I found the perfectly coloured spot in my garden for a photo shoot!...
...here's the completed bag - the pattern is "Anna's Sminkepung" by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. As my regular blog followers know, I have made quite a lot of bags using this pattern over the past few years, and I never get bored with this pattern! The instructions are in Norwegian, but there are lots of diagrams which make it very easy to follow. I'll be making a few more of these over the next few weeks, so I need to stock up on a few more yards of lace and zippers and buttons for the trimmings!
