Cuff Work in Progress

This is the beginnings of a cuff based on Byzantine patterns. The base is hand dyed felt layered with angelina and patterned lacy fabric. I then have added machine stitching, handstitching and beads. I am having a think about how to finish the edges.

Evening Bag

I enjoyed making this little evening bag. The first photo is of the front of the bag and the next photo is the back. I took the handles from a paper carrier bag and machined over them adding snippets of the same fabrics that I used to decorate the bag.

Jan's Bag is Finished

At last my bag is finished. I have struggled for a while to come up with any ideas and then suddenly all fell into place. I think Ali will be pleased that I have finished this piece if only to stop me moaning about my lack of inspiration or rather motivation. Anyway hopefully I now have loads of both and there will be more from me so watch this space!
