I can pull the curtains all the way closed but left them open a smidge so that you could get an idea of the boring before.
Sew, How Are You?
As a decorator, I am surrounded by fabric. I generally have a bit of fabric left over from client projects as well as fabric books that contain swatches that are no longer available. For the life of me, I cannot bring myself to toss such loveliness out. Each summer I come up with an idea of how I can use the fabric to create holiday gifts for my clients and friends. In past years I have made wine/cider bags, candle bags, and muffin mix bags. This year I decided to make lavender sachet bags.
After the bags are filled and hand sewn shut, I will embellish them with a few trinkets and ribbons. I try to make sure each client receives their own original fabric.
Here is a close up of the stitching. The back is almost as pretty as the front. The triangular piece will become an envelope flap for an 18-inch pillow.
This pretty piece of cotton voile was hand embroidered by a young girl. When she joined the pieces together, the top line was placed upside down. I think this adds to its charm. I am going to make a kidney pillow out of it.
A big “Merci Beaucoup” to Celita from The Altar blog.
She has bestowed the “Wylde Women Award” onto me. The purpose of the award is “To send love and acknowledgment to women who brighten your day, teach you new things and live their lives fully with generosity and joy.”
I have to say that this award gave me a wee small lump in my throat. Thank you very much!
