Purple Monogrammed Cosmetic Bag

This was one of my recent custom orders. I have actually made several of these, in different fabrics and with different letters. This cosmetic bag was custom made for a woman's mother-in-law that loves anything purple! I chose a lovely lilac fabric with a subtle floral print, and contrasted it with a dark purple fabric that has a slight tye-dye look. The lining of the bag is a lilac cotton. A matching zipper tops the bag off and keeps everything securely inside. These personalized cosmetic bags make a special and unique gift for any girl, including yourself!

Seeing Black and White

I haven't posted a blog in a few days because I have been working a rather unique project. Our church is having VBS this summer with a Nascar/racing theme, so I am making a huge black and white checkered flag right now. I have to sew together around 166 black and white squares! Hopefully I will get it finished before the weekend so I can get back to more interesting, creative things!

The most recent fun thing I made was a camera case for my mom. She left with my dad and little brother on vacation yesterday, and took the case with her before I could get pictures taken. I will post pictures of the case as soon as she gets home on Monday. I had a lot of fun with different colored threads and stitching designs on this project, and I'm looking forward to sharing it!

I have a few other custom orders that I've done that I will post on here as soon as possible! For now, I need to check my laundry and go sew more squares together... This flag has definately made me appreciate working with cute, colorful fabric!
