I have been working over the holidays not in my usual paint/paper/fiber but actually following a pattern and making handbags and a backpack. Very relaxing following a pattern and the only decisions are what fabric to use.
This backpack is made from Lazy Girl Designs Pattern. I purchased the fabric when we were in
Ashville, North Carolina.
Another Lazy Girl Design. The fabric that I used came from Japan purchased by my daughter when she was living there. I have been saving it for a while and was quite pleased with the finished product. The button, hard to see ,I know, is an old one from my stash waiting for the right time to use it.
These two bags were made as gifts one for my daughter and one for her mother-in-law.
I am presently taking a some line classes with with Maggie Grey and also Linda Monk and Carole McFee. I've given myself a bit of a holiday and plan on resuming the lessons this week. I'll post my results as I go along.
