Sublime Stitching is a book of hip embroidery patterns by Jenny Hart.  There is a forum here in the Needlework section specifically for her book. 

Bend the Rules Sewing is a book that was recently released by Amy Carol

It's beautiful. And I love pink also.

I have the book and have wanted to make the bag. My only fear is sewing around the top where all the pleats and handle meet. It seems like many layers and I'm afraid that my sewing machine (although a good little worker, it's not heavy duty) will not be able to make it through all those layers.

How was your experience sewing in that area?

If I make the bag, I hope mine comes out as pretty.

I clicked on your profile and noticed you live in Santa Cruz. My home town. I lived there for the first 25 years of my life but have not for many many years. I now live farther north in California.

It was difficult to sew threw all those layers.  I almost broke a needle.    To top it off I wasnt that happy with how the topstitching came out on the inside.  The outside looks fine but the tension looks off from the thick fabric on the interior.  I think that if you went over the pleats and handles by turning the wheel manually it would go easier on the machine. 

I just moved to Santa Cruz and I love it!  Although I am not used to parking meters, since there arent any where I am from.  I keep forgetting to feed the meter and I got a ticket this morning!

Thanks when I get there, I'll give that a try. I've even thought I may have to hand sew through that part.

Glad you like Santa Cruz. I do not know how anyone can afford to live there anymore. People have told me it has changed alot. Have not been there for years. And sorry about your parking ticket.
