In the pics below is a custom made purse ordered by the shop manager where I sell my quilty stuff. She picked out the fabrics and I was not wild about them, so it was a bit of a challenge. But she wanted a little metallic thread for bling, so I got to play around with some and it was wonderful. I used Superior Thread's metallic thread in gold and no problems whatsoever.
Over all, the bag had a oriental thing going on and she was quite pleased with it. The bag pattern is my own design and this time I added zippered pockets on the inside.
I do like the purse design, but it seems to take forever to make even though it is fairly simple. The handles are a bit fiddly but worth it.
In other quilty news, I've finally begun to quilt my large art quilt that I made to give as a thank you to my church. It's very big and means a lot to me so it's been slow going.
What have you been stitching on?
