INSPIRATION IMAGINATION CREATION
To make these Messenger Bags, I used a tutorial provided by sew4home. The tutorial is called Slim Mustang Messenger Bag with Tuck Locks. I have omitted the tuck locks. I cut into three old jean pants to be able to use their thick fabrics...
I have made two Cylindrical Pouches recently, both gifts for my son’s birthdays. I made them with one of my sons’ old pants (beige corduroy), pieces of wool (scraps from skirts I made a long time ago) and two zippers ripped off my spouse’s old pants.
I find this house whimsical with the vine growing on the front door and the roof. Because of this vine, and despite the dark and traditional burgundy bricks of the wall, the house has a joyous air. The garden also reflects this duality between seriousness and amusement: paved but curved walkway, symmetrical but dotty bushes, straight line of flowers along the wall but flowers scattered on the grass.
While making the Single Rose Mini Mini Quilts with Lara’s Crafted Appliqué method (Buzzin Bumble), it occurred to me that those roses would make beautiful cards. I have various pre-cut cardboard cards and I found two in the right colors and sizes.
Color scheme: beach sand dunes.
I turned my Single Rose Mini Mini Quilts into embroidery projects. When I stitched the rose appliqués (made with the Crafted Appliqué method) through the three layers of the mini mini quilts, the outline of the roses appeared on the back. These quilted roses seemed to be asking me for embroidery enhancement. I was happy to oblige.
