Project Description

What was your source for this embroidery project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Crazy Patchwork Pouch Link to website or photo www.amazon.com/Sensational-Patchwork-Bags-Susan-Briscoe/dp/B0044KMQFO/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1326268922&sr=1-1 What are you most proud of? I am proud to have completed the project and replicated the original for the most part with the exception of being able to duplicate the fabrics...it is still a one of a kind, that is for sure! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure if you are foundation piecing a piece going at an odd angle that you have cut an extra large piece of fabric and figured out how the material will fold once it is flipped so that it covers all the necessary area. Foundation piecing is easy once you learn all the little tricks to the shapes.

Q&A with StitchingTeresa

I truly love this. I have tons of satins and fabrics that would be just the ticket for these types. I used to embroider but sold the machine so I am a hand worker now. I went to amazon and found the book and am buying it. I love making handbags and mixing crochet with fabric is too too cool. Thanks for the tip! Bless you!
StitchingTeresa answered:
I also use "Readers Digest Complete Guide to Embroidery Stitches" to come up with all the different embroidery stitches if you need a resource for that. It's a great book, too! I'd love to have a bag like this alot bigger, but I'd be scared to carry it around, the materials are so delicate! It'd be pretty though!
