When I challenged myself I had already made the blue backing for a tote with stitchery front.
Yesterday, Tuesday, I made this makeup / necessities purse. It is 7" wide and 8" high, with inside pockets.
The stitchery is my own drawing and the text is from a well known Norwegian song. One of the verses is about putting strawberries on a straw. Ta et strå = take a straw.
Today I put the final touches to the sewing bag from Nancy's class 10 days ago.
I have used it to a guild meeting today, and it has room for all that I need.
The interior is very clever and organized.
If you want to get in touch with Nancy for a class, here is her mail address.
Nancy is a very nice teacher :-)
