Charcoal Gray and Winter White Upholstery Fabric Strips, and Black/White Zebra Print Cotton Lining, and a Silver Magnetic Snap.
What was your inspiration?
I am grateful to Carol Ann Waugh for her two inspiring Craftsy online classes, "Stupendous Stitching", and "Stitch and Slash." Those two classes pulled me out of the fog; out of the hum-drum way I usually design and plan sewing projects---it brought me into a new dimension--the land of "There Are No Rules" and "There Are No Mistakes."
Even though I didn't use decorative stitching or slashing this time in creating the Tuxedo Purse, I was able to apply her "fearless" approach. Making my own fabric by combining the gray and white is so neat. I don't think it would have occurred to me to experiment like this--had it not been for Carol's inspiring classes.
What are you most proud of?
I made good fabric choices in this project. Both are upholstery fabrics leftover from other projects, and both fabrics are well matched in thickness and softness.
