Well, it's Spring Break for my kids this week. Whether I can survive the bickering and the complaints about not being able to find anyone to play with remains to be seen. My kids really love school and they just don't know what to do with themselves when there is no school. So, hopefully we'll be able to survive without seriously hurting each other!
I just finished designing and making some new bags in the studio. I really like these. The exteriors of the bags are mostly over-dyed 100% cotton upholstery fabric. They are lined with hand-dyed cotton fabric and lightly padded with Quilter's Dream polyester batting. The interior of each bag sports a small pocket. The bags are about 8 inches wide and 6.5 inches tall. They have a black zipper closure. Each bag is embellished with a hand-painted and free-motion stitched canvas panel that has been tea dyed. On each panel is an inspirational word stamped onto twill tape.
These are very different from anything I have done in the past but I am really liking the freshness of them!
