A pretty little bag and a card

Following yesterday's post, I have finished the {sshhh} task I was working on this morning and decided that I hadn't quite had enough Amy Butler just yet. Clint has taken the girls into work for the morning, so I found myself with a little free time to continue my Amy "Lurrve" obsession. My favourite fabric from the new collection is the Tumbled Roses. I have made this little number for myself this morning with yesterday's leftovers....

 

...pretty, don't you think?

 

I put a small yo yo under the button with some interfacing, just to strengthen where the button is stitched straight onto the cotton fabric, and add a different touch...

 

...one little pocket inside that houses my phone and lippy perfectly...

...and for the papercrafters out there who are growing tired of my personal and fabric posts, here's one for you;)...

 

I love cards with fabric... and did I mention that I like Amy Butler fabric?? My favourite hobbies are sewing with gorgeous designer fabrics, and creating unique cards for the special people in my life... I love it when the two collide.

Enjoy your week, only 4 sleeps til Santy Claus visits...

Smiles:) bye for now.

Ok girl, I need some help! Want to come to the US and fix my sewing machine? I have had nothing but problems with my machine. It is a decent machine, I think. It was a couple hundred. It is practically new, I have hardley used it. The tension keeps getting clogged??? I tried to sew this morning and I just had to put it up. I am so frustrated. I don't know what else to do.

Oh that's no fun! I have a 30 odd year old Elna that was my mum's, she hasn't missed a beat. I seriously don't think they make them like they used to. I do hope you get it all sorted soon.
