Completed my first needle-turn #applique ever tonight. Reminded of some important things... 1. It is ok to use my most beautifulist fabric - there will always be beautiful fabric. 2. The joy of learning new #skills usually is greater than the frustration. 3. #cricutmaker is the bomb. I sized down a pattern from #carolynfriedlander#trudyblock and used the cricut maker to mark the basting line and cut the circles.
Here it is, y'all! I'm excitedly nervous to host our first giveaway! This bag is one from a pattern I created for my mama, and in her honor I named this style JJ (the name my second child gave her randomly one morning). The JJ is reversible, so this is two bags in one! Each side has its own pocket, so there's always an inside and outside pocket, and unless you have a "phablet", your phone should fit! The denim is repurposed jeans bought at thrift stores, and the red fabric is a nice chambray. Each cover has a unique heart applique embellishment.
So how can you win this adorable bag you ask? Well....
