Bags, and More Bags

I am a bag nut!!!! I love making bags.....thought you might like to see some of my "favorites "
Between Bags and Jackets I love to sew....


I decided to recycle some Jeans and incorporate a pocket from them on the front as well as the back of the bag, using a crazy patch style. All the seams are decorated with decorative stitches.
I used my embroidery machine to write the letters. the shoes and tyhe face. The size is 14"x14" and has a zipper closing. Isn't it cute!!!!

Salute to Vincent

I just finished another page for my Beaded Journal Project. My theme for this project is "Song Titles" and this one is "Starry Starry Night"

I admire Vincent VanGogh's work and I decided to use his work for this page. I love the song that goes with it too.

I think I should have chosen to work in a smaller size. The postcard size (4"x6") takes a long time to complete. However I am commited and I will see it through.

I am not a real experienced beader and I found achieving the swirls was a bit of a problem. I think I redid a few areas twice!!!! No fun there!

I am about 60% happy with the finished piece.
