Orange felt, bright yellow zipper, dark denim jeans and azzurro (how do you say that color? light blue?) and orange stars heavy cotton huge shirt, that I found at Porta Portese (the weekly, famous open market here in Rome) for 1 euro.


Thanks for looking, ciao!

It looks great. 

I have one question, though.  Did you use orange thread with the machine stitching on the felt?  I always end up using mini sewing kit spools with my applique embellishments.  Do you have a cheap thread source or do you just buy what's in the store?

Thank you Smiley
Yes, I used orange thread for the felt applique; if you need lots of thread of a same colour, you could buy it wholesale (? don't know if correct) instead of buying a single spool from the store. Also, in some stores, they sell retail big spools that are cheaper compared to a little spool. In general, the more you buy (the bigger amount of a same thing) the less it will cost. You could buy big cheaper spools for colours that you use much, and use the regular spools for other colours that you tend to use less.
Hope that was what you were looking for!

That's really cute! I had an idea to start making similar little bags to keep my wide range of knick knacks.
