A friend of mine hooked me up with a fabulous graphic artist in Dallas for my new logo. She bartered her services for some sewn samples. This is what I am sending her... yes I know the pics suck - Avadon I'm not!  Wink

A patchwork, vinyl lined tote; a mannicure bag; a coin purse; lanyard and covered journal





Some details:

I love the contrast and fabric colors on the first bag. Really nice. Made me look twice, trying to decide if I should make one???

All of the fabric was from my stash... actually I think I got it all from Joanns...

And the journal is really easy... i just made a paper bookcover then unfolded it and cut fabric to match. Then sew the corners to make the pocket for the book's hard covers, trim the excess and Voila!... Journal!Just make sure you quilt the fabric before you cut it. Also, use thinner fabrics, bulkier ones distort the book's shapes.

I love that fabric!  It's so bright and colorful.  I made an a-line skirt out of it, and it's wonderfully summery.
