auction #37 ~ "hide the silver" drawstring bag

During the same shopping trip that included the veggie ribbon, I was seduced by this delightful silverware ribbon.  I was on the same embroidery kick, and was inspired by my Downton-Abbey-binge-watching and the hilarious Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley.  Oh does that character ever crack me up!

Size:  4.75" x 9"

auction #36 ~ "eat your veggies" drawstring bag

 

Here's a little embroidered bag that I made ... I think 3 years ago?  I bought the cute ribbon on impulse and then when I got home, I decided to replicate the veggies with embroidery, as one does. ;)  It makes me chuckle.  I've just never found the right recipient for it. 

Size:  5.5" x 7"

auction #36 ~ typewriter illustration tote

It is almost physically painful for me to sell this lovely tote.  This was my first project using sewing illustration that I learned from my sweet friend Minki's book.  I love everything about it.  But I need to be perfectly honest with myself, and ruthless with my sewing room organizing.  I know I will never use it.  I can't.  It's too pretty!  But it just feels so wrong to keep it in a box or a cupboard doing nothing.  It really should be used and enjoyed by someone.  I hope that someone is you. xo

auction #35 ~ japanese hexagon flap bag

I thought I would use it.  I used all my absolute favourite silver and taupe japanese prints.  I meant to use it.  But I don't.  Sigh.  Maybe you will use it? :)  (I inserted a piece of kraft-tex in the bottom to keep it from sagging.)

Size:  6.75" wide x 9" tall x 6" deep

auction #34 ~ mrs. march quilt market tote

Lecien commissioned me to design and make this tote for Quilt Market Spring 2016 to promote the latest Mrs. March collection.  I love making things to show off an entire collection.  This was a really fun project for me.  I had two patchwork designs in mind and I couldn't decide which one I liked better, so I used both ... one on the front and one on the back (it's up to you to decide which is which).  Plus I got to use small pieces. ;)  The handles are faux leather.

Size:  11.5" tall x 13" wide x 3" deep

auction #33 ~ flower sugar zippered pouch set

Well.  In my opinion this is THE perfect gift.  It's pretty, it's in Christmas colours but it's not "Christmas-y", it's useful, it's practical, it's THREE gifts in ONE ... can't get any better than that. :)  I made this as a prototype for my Amy's Pretty Pockets pattern.

Sizes:  Large = 10.25" x 7", medium = 8.5" x 5.5", small = 6.25" x 4"

auction #32 ~ epp iPad mini zippered case II

Here's the second version of the iPad case I designed for Love Patchwork & Quilting that they liked.  I used Lecien's Minny Muu.  So cute.  I love all those little prints.  And the grey solid give it a more modern edge.  The patchwork is all hand-pieced and hand quilted.

auction #24 ~ triangle drawstring bag

This is another prototype for Love Patchwork & Quilting.  I made this version first because I love the bows print.  But then I realized that there wasn't enough contrast between the two fabrics for a magazine photo (below is the actual magazine pix).  But of course it's MY personal favourite of the three ...  (Please note that this one does NOT have pompoms.)

This auction is for the first bag shown only (not the two in the photo above).

auction #21 ~ tilda hexagon pincushion

Sigh.  I love this little thing.  Everything about her is perfect - tiny pink flowers, a bit of gingham, linen, embroidery, hexagons, small pieces ... AND she's useful!  Why am I selling her?  Because she's not fulfilling her destiny here.  She's just sitting on a shelf.  She needs to be appreciated properly. ;)
