Okay... so i'm a newbie and this is my first post... just thought i'd mention that for some reason...

anywhoo, so i finished a bag today! and i'm actually going to keep it. everyone always thinks that because i sew for a living, that everything i have is something i made, but actually, i never keep anything for myself, so this is mine! :]

i used felt for the tree and leaves appliques and lined it with a super cute green and earthy cotton. i think it turned out quite yummy. and there's a super cute button on the back.

the red corduroy isn't that red, its more of a deep burgundy/red. very autumn-ish. i just had to show someone!! there's no one home and i'm really proud of how well the tree came out. :]

it took me about an hour and 10 minutes just to sew the leaves and tree on.

and here's a better pic with the color being a bit more true:

all we were searching for was someone or something to believe in. i guess that's why we got each other.

So cute! I saw the bag before in the recent posts with pictures (that was hours ago, though), but when I just checked again and saw the matching wallet, I knew I had to reply. I could never go through all that trouble to make something like that. Next you need to make a winder one with snow on blue corduroy, a tree with little green buds on pink corduroy, and a tree with big green leaves on yellow corduroy. Okay, enough with my silly little mental pictures. But you'd be really cool if you had a bag like that for every season(on that note, I do hope you have four seasons where you live or else I just sounded pretty dumb).

thanx for all the compliments!  Grin

we do have seasons here... and i have thought about a bag for all seasons. sounds really fun actually! i was thinking of doing a spring one next, with a cute little budding tree. oohh... perhaps i'll have to start one tomarrow. :]

although, i just got this new fabric that i want to do an ocean scene with...

tough choice!

i'll have to get back to you on that one... Huh

thank you!

i like to sew by hand, but it can be very time consuming. when i work with felt, i like to sew by hand. its fun to add the little details that you can't really do with a machine.

i do recommend a machine, even though some days, betsy (my machine) is my best friend, and other days shes lucky she doesn't fly through a window.  Grin
