its been quite the sewing saturday today! among other things, I came up with a few new goodies.

the boho bag

green lace and flower applique on front

inside pocket with label (from hertrigger!  Smiley)


les fleurs tote

i've been hanging on to this fabric and finally decided what to do with it. I used a gray 10oz canvas and it worked quite well!

lining and pocket

And.. my favourite thing ever!! The green tote! I don't know how I'm going to part with this baby.  Cheesy
I came across this green fabric today and it reminds me of a 60's or 70's couch or chair. Its coushy and woven, but I'm not sure what it is exactly. I was hesitant to work with it, but it did just fine!


Its hard to see the details, but I used a green varigated thread and did some stitching up and across the appliques.


and because of the retro feel.. i had to go with the green paisley lining.


It really looks awesome in person and you get a feel for the true texture of this wierd fabric.

So whatcha think?  Smiley

I love all of them.  The fabric is amazing.  Is it all vintage or new?  I can see why the green bag is your favorite.  You could always keep it and use it for wonderful adverstising.  Good job!

All three of those are awesome!
My favorites are the first one and the third one.
I love the shape and lining of the first one and all the details you put into the second one are great!
Do you sell these?
