The Machine Embroidered Quilt »
InstructionsI made a mini-quilt of the Hourglass embroidery designs and turned them into a handbag. You can view the tutorial on my blog:
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Classic, Traditional
Upholstery fabric and batting
What was your inspiration?
I love the hourglass designs and wanted to see how they looked in upholstery fabrics!
What are you most proud of?
The straps! I love the grommets and the way the buttons keep the straps in place.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use fusible web on the wrong side of the applique fabric (the darker tan fabric) because a handbag gets a lot of wear and tear. The permanent fusing will hold the appliques in place.
