Both bags were made for each of my partners for the Fungus Among Us Mushroom Swap. Both were made following tutorials found online. Don't feel like searching for them right now, but if I asked I can dig them up.  Cheesy

The tye dyed parts are the same fabric as the terra cotta fabric, I bleach dyed the fabric to add some zing to the material. And I did machine embroidered mushrooms to keep with the theme of the mushroom swap.

I would say the patterns are easy enough to follow for the people a few steps passed beginning level - no too hard to understand, but a little knowledge would help alot! I'd only ever made circle skirts before this, and I think I gained +20 in my sewing skill. Loved the patterns, loved the purses, wish I could have kept them for myself!

I really love what you have done with the fabric. The colours are simply great!

Recently 'discovered' sewing machines and now I am addicted. I have been making clothes and bags and I want to try to make poppet sometime soon.

Thaaaaankyou! The fabric's from a king size duvet I found at Saver's for 12 bucks. I have tons of fabric left over and I plan to make a circle skirt out of it next.  Cheesy

This is the piece that I bleached, it's still wet so the yellow/orangey colors hadn't come out yet.
