Earlier this year I posted about this little bag I was making for Tassy's 10th birthday.  I transposed two of the little girls from the tiny print fabric onto calico.  I embroidered their hair, limbs and shoes and appliqued their clothes.  I painted their hair and shoes with fabric paint.

 Here is the finished sewing bag.  The tiny print are on opposite sides of the bag, the other two sides being the applique girls.
I also made a scissor holder, scissor keep, pin cushion and  needle book.  I was thrilled with how it turned out. 
The little bag is a 9" cube and is so handy as it sits open and straight while you work.


  1. It is such a great gift! Your transposing and colouring is just gorgeous. It never ceases to amaze me at how easily you can redraw something you see. You are a real arteest!

  2. I love it so much. I love that Tassy likes to sew things. REcently she decided to make an elf (like mine) for her teacher. She made the whole thing! Hand stitched. By total coincidence it was her teachers birthday too! How funny! I forgot to get a photo so I asked Dave to take one - it's not a good photo but at least it's something!

  3. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blogs of your trip to Alaska and seeing all the beautiful things you make. You are very talented. Sylvia J.
