As mentioned in a previous post, I am participating in a summer sewing challenge sponsored by Sew Mama Sew using Manchester Metallics by Robert Kaufman fabrics. Here's a sneak peak at what I am working on.
I love collaborating with Sew Mama Sew. The challenge is summer bag sewing and these are the fabrics that I chose:
I am using shiny silver thread because it was in my stash. I haven't used this thread since I made myself a silvery Halloween costume.
Here's the finished applique. If you've seen my work, you'll know that I love to applique on everything.
Look, it's a bike!
But we are not done yet... time for some quilting.
I didn't go over the applique, just stitched straight lines around it.
Were these pictures enough of a hint as to what I am making? Stayed tuned for my next post for the big reveal...
