I’m working on a cool, new 2016 calendar for you right now. Yep, just for you. It will be free, downloadable and printable. That post will be next, but, for just a second, I want to share something fun with you. I have been trolling my photo stash and getting majorly side tracked by the past. Wouldn’t you know that instead of working diligently, I’m tripping down memory lane?And what better day to do it? It is cold, cloudy and rainy outside, so I have my mug of hot chocolate at hand and will show you some pics of cute little bags that I used to make and sell. This bag has a patch pocket with a panel of purchased fabric that I embellished with beads, buttons and embroidery. I don’t work with patterns on these simple totes. I just fold, cut and sew. The handles are my design- I think that the rope and double loops look pretty cool. The next few tote bags feature my painted and stamped fabric on the patch pockets. Pretty cute, huh? Have you tried anything with painted or embellished cloth? If you have posted pictures of your fiber art, why don’t you put a link in “comments”. I would love to check out your art.
