All Stitched up!

Since getting my new sewing machine I've faffed around with a few things but this I am particularly proud of, so it's made it onto my blog! I sewed together lots of patterned patchwork squares without really having anything in mind, and after a bit of playing around ended up with this cute little make-up sized bag :)




I've also used it to stitch around the border of the little square in the middle of this card

Gorgeous bag! You should SO sell these! I love how you have taken items people would run a mile from (like peel offs!!) and made them look so modern and professional.. you really have a talent for cards.

I am impressed Gemma that you can sew on your cards in a straight line! It is simply very elegant!
