Some of you might already know I’m a Jamie Oliver fan. I discovered him in college, while working at the library. Some of my friends from the College St. days might even remember the Baked Onions I made. (oh, they were soooo good!)
I found a new hobby! Decoupage!
See what I made!
Now off to design!
It’s been another random week here at Casa de Craft.
I made another bag I’m really happy with:
Disclaimer: Dear family & non-long arm quilting friends, you might find this post tedious & dull. I apologize, but don’t worry, there’s more non-serious stuff coming up soon.
There’s been discussion on a long arm list about tension. Well, actually there’s ALWAYS discussion around tension. It’s a bit of a pain. And a bit of a learning curve. Back in October, I had the chance to go to AQS Des Moines & take some long arm classes. (If you ever have the chance to go to an AQS show, go, Go, GO!!!! You will NOT regret it!)
I made a bag.
I quite proud of this bag.
I actually Sewed it. Notice this is sewing with a capital S. This is not homemade, this is the good stuff.
I researched french seams to make the bag more durable. I took my time ironing the bag, so it wouldn’t look wonky. I even very slowly stitched all around my seams to “set” everything & make it look even more professional.
This was a success. I will proudly carry this bag around in public. I think I’m going to make another bag.
