I was asked to do some applique embroidery. It is where you sewing material onto something, outlined in shapes, letters, etc. I've done it alot, but never considered layering the material. It turned out cute - it's green material with clear netting material with stars on it layered on top. I'm glad someone was creative enough to think of layering - oh, the possiblities! (side note - at our church the children's church has a motto of "CTR" which means "Choose the Right", make right choices in all you do)

Does it get any cuter than mom/daughter purses! I'll have to admit that I wasn't a fan of this pattern in the beginning, but a friend picked it. And now that I see the end results, I'm really liking it. Not to toot my own horn, but it is very well sewn. Less handmade, more boutique quality. It really shows when you use all the linings and follow the directions instead of just skimping. I made the main purse using an Amy Butler pattern. The small one I just made up the pattern - impressive, eh. If you haven't sewn a purse/bag before, now's the time to try - you can do it!
