A New Purse for me!

With all of the holiday crafting I have been doing and gifts I have been sewing in the last few weeks (which I will show later as I don't know who will be reading :) I took a little time today to make a new purse for me!
I received theses great Tina Givens fabrics in a swap I started with a fun patchwork using 3" x3" squares and added a little chocolate cord! I love how it turned out!

I love this design it was super easy!

I even added a zipper.

Silver hardware.

& a chocolate gingham lining.

I hope everyone is enoying the holidays! Meg

Holiday Fun with Felt......

I love felt, the wool kind is nice but I love the bright colored squares you can buy from the craft store best! Some of my favorite Christmas ornaments from my family's tree growing up were a set of felt & sequin ornaments my Great Grandmother made for us. My mother would keep them packed safe in a box all of their own and they were normally the last ones to be put on the tree before the tinsel.
I decided this year I wanted some special felt ornaments to add to my family's tree! I began looking around and I found this wonderful owl tutorial & free pattern from the Fabulous Anna Maria Horner's Blog check out this felt garland as well!

Very simple supplies

Easy to follow instructions & a pattern you can print!

This is my first experience with a blanket stitch.

I am getting quite the little pile going.

I love how they look on my tree!

Now that I am completely addicted to these little owls I found this when browsing Sandi Henderson's blog last night! Another felt project, she has just released a fun new little pattern Birds of a Feather I must start these at once. I will however be adding a little bling to mine you can never have too many sequins.

As my husband once put it to me it looks Mardigras blew up on our Christmas tree, but I can't help it I love color! He & my son enjoy it too!

Here is a peek at my tree!

Hope you are enjoying your Holiday Season! Meg
