Yep...it's cuttin' time here! At our 'girls weekend' I made a snap bag and hum bug bag...for some reason, I struggled putting in that dumb zipper...you only use one side of a zipper and insert the pull, yada, yada...anyway, I wanted to make a gift for Tommy to thank her for her hospitality so on Monday I took this quilt.....
And cut it up! It was a piece of black fabric that my daughter had bleach resisted...hence, the orange. She stamped images (rectangles) with Jacquard paints. I thought the piece was pretty interesting so I used it as a 'hand job' (as Tommy likes to say!) and hand stitched the black and orange areas and continued with embroidery stitches in the rectangles.
This is a closeup of the stitching. I did take it with me this past weekend but never had a chance to cut it up.
This is the hum bug bag I made on Monday and mailed to Tommy! and I didn't have any problem putting in the zipper! WooHoo!
