Sew, Stitch, Snap, SHARE

It has been all about hand quilting with a little bit of colourful frippery thrown in  over the past couple of weeks.
  • This cute little dilly bag was made very quickly, using a pattern from Broderie - available here.  Some beautiful Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry and Margot Elena fabrics, have all combined wonderfully together. It's not a big bag, but I am sure it will be useful for travelling with small craft projects, such as hexis or a little crochet.  I could also see a few made up in Christmas fabrics for reusuable gift bags.
  • I loved playing with this fabric and the opportunities it gave me, for adding a little pizazz to the hand quilting on my sea glass sampler quilt.  Luckily I have used it a few times on the quilt, so there will be a consistency to the quilting throughout the quilt.
Now it's your turn to share, it doesn't matter if it's embroidery, a quilt, applique or epp, or some other stitched or sewn project,  It can be a start, a finish or just a wip.  All we ask is that you follow these guidelines when linking up:
  • Link up any post from the past week that features  a sewing or stitching project you have been working on.
  • Somewhere in your post, please link to this one.
  • Also please take the time to read and comment on some of the other linked posts, it is always nice to know that people are reading what you have written, and we are trying to encourage people to keep blogging and reading blogs.
Thanks for joining us

  1. Such a cute wee bag and yes made in Christmas fabrics filled with goodies would be awesome.

  2. Cute litle bag, ideal for storing hexis! Using the fabric grid is such a great way to add texture.

  3. I have been eyeing off that bag pattern. I love the fabrics you've used. I'm wondering what size pattern you bought and made? Would you make it bigger next time perhaps?

  4. This is a gorgeous bag. x

  5. Your handquilting is looking lovely and I agree, the wee bag is very cute. I hope to be back later today to link up :-)

  6. I love the wee bag you've stitched and the gridded fabric is a boon for hand quilting on a perfect line.

  7. That's so fun, finding the gold "stitching" and playing with it. And yes, that's a very pretty little bag.

  8. Great stitching and bag, cute choice for storage.
