I don't know where I posted earlier.... I thought I had a picture up of the fabric I embellished... but can't find it now.

So let me start over:

When I got my first machine in 1975, with all those cams to make decorative stitches, I took a class on "Crazy Stitches". I remember making a funky table runner back then.

I got re-inspired to do this all again after reading all the buzz about Stupendous Stitching Class on Craftsy.com . (that class is on sale again, by the way!)

Here's one of the pics from my blog:



This was a lot of fun to make.

There's more pics here: Mardi Gras Bag

This one was made up entirely of fabric from my Great Craigslist Fabric Acquisition of 2012... right down to the pocket in the lining.

I think I'm going to do the next one up out of selvedge edges...

Beautiful purse. I am working my way through the Stupendous Stitching class and it is so much fun. I never knew what to do with the stitches on my sewing machine. Being a garment sewist, this was an eye opener for me. And did I say it is fun?

My daughter bought me the class... and to be honest, I did enjoy having it play in the background while I was drinkin' wine and working on the stitching on this bag.

When I looked today, the class was on sale for $19.99 again!

For $20, you can't go wrong. She had some really neat tips and ideas.
