Project Complete...

Evey once in a while, I'm so taken with a pattern or design, I abandon what I'm working on and jump immediately into a new project. Necessity was also a reason to jump here, because, I needed a new purse!

Quilter/sewer that I am, I got excited by this
pattern in the Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine. It's rich with ideas and patterns in a style that's both whimsical and country-just beautiful...smile..

If you want a challenge, try this hexagon constructed purse.

I used Pellon Craft weight fusible interfacing on both sides of the front, back and lining. I like using this product when I embroidery, because you don't have to stretch the fabric and you get no puckers when after you are done.

The bag is lovely.
I like to use pellon also, you can carry your threads and they are not visible at the front. I'm a lazy embroiderer but what the heck!

Your bag has turned out great. Hexagons are showing up everywhere.

Julie your bag is just adorable. I'm a big fan of AP&Q and Homespun and Country Threads. Fortunatley I have a good friend back home that sends them to me.
Couldn't get over the beautiful wildlife you have at your home. How wonderful to be able to look out onto that.
