We had a great summer! Had lots of fun here in the city, and still had time to participate in a few Craftster swaps! I've got a back log of photos of things I made over the summer that I haven't had time to share with y'all, so the next couple of posts will get you caught up on my latest adventures in makin' stuff.
This trio was made for the Sew Something Summery Swap--so much fun to dive in to a sewing themed swap when I still consider myself very much a beginner. A very simple (and reversible) tote bag, wristlet, and lined zipper purse.
Of course I had to throw in some fancy embroidery to try to make up for the sewing being so simple.
The center of the flower is all french knots! Honestly, I was very happy to have a project that would give me the opportunity to make a bazillion of them, is that twisted or what? Also, any chance to practice satin stitching is a good one, so I used tons of that too!
Ah, I think I'll enjoy the quiet of only have one kid at home for the rest of the afternoon, in the A/C, of course. Because, back to school may say fall, but around here, mother nature says it going to be 95 degrees today. Yay summer!
