Soul Food #41~
Sewing: A creative mess is better than tidy idleness. ~Author Unknown
It does make a mess..but it's soothing..like gardening..and I have Kathy to thank for the inspiration ..of my take on an Amy Butler Swing Bag~ I have many ideas.. not enough fabric..It took me a while to get used to reading a pattern..
Which this one goes something like this..:)
Place the right sides of the Main on the wrong sides of the Canvas and then put the left hand on the right side..Oy..Really she explains it so well..it's just that my pattern reading side of the brain has been too quiet for too long..:)
It felt good to stitch a bag~
I showed Lulu the small burlap heart I made and stuffed and stamped with a crown and said what's this Lulu? He said.."Dust?"
Thank goodness Jacques said:"Une couronne?"(A crown?) If he knew.. I was ok.
I am naming this one Marie Antoinette~
