Chocolate Brown Handbag

Well I didn't exactly make what I had in mind, but this came out gorgeous! Its is so soft you would not even believe it was vinyl. Looks a lot like leather, and although I could have made this in leather, I was anxious to try this new fabric. It cut nicely and was able to make flower petals leaving the edges raw so it gives it the look I wanted. The next bag I make is going to have purples or burgandy and reds in it. I am thinking roses again. That is what I originally had in mind. But you know it is alright. As long as I am creating something. I have made a sketch of the bag I am thinking of. I just need to see if I can put it all together. I tend to avoid things when they get complicated, but I have had a very productive last couple of days.
I did not sew at all yesterday. Ughh!
I spent the entire day reorganizing and cleaning up my whole sewing area. It was much needed. After a few projects it begins to overwhelm me. I need a clean space to work and it helps to clear my mind. It was like finding burried treasure. I found lots of missing things.

This morning was filled with preparation and then suddenly the power went out and I was left in silence and the realization that I cannot sew. I cannot even turn the lights on. And it was cold. It made me appreciate electricity so much more. So I cut fabric. Not my favorite thing to do, but it leads into the next best thing. You cant have one without the other right.
