Now I've lost November

I can't believe it's December already. I managed to get in one post for November, I'll see if I can get two in for December.
I've added a bag to my Etsy shop and intend to add two more, some sun printed fabrics to stitch and some stamps. Taking photos of them and writing descriptions, uploading them to my shop all takes so much time, but hopefully it will happen.

I created this piece by stitching lots of strips of fabric together, adding ribbons at the joins, then free motion machine stitching over the whole piece.

this is the front of the bag made from the piece of fabric I created above

the back of the bag

the bright magenta silk mix lining.

the hand dyed doily trim with a vintage belt buckle.

these are some of the sun printed fabrics I'm adding to my Etsy tonight

this is how I use them in my journals, but you could stitch them to canvas or frame them, or add them to art quilts, cushions, bags, clothing etc.

my two studio re-organisers, just when I think I know where things are Charlie and Monty decide to move things around or hide them. Charlie's slowly learning to tolerate Monty, who insists on sleeping next to him whenever he can.

Happy creating and I'll try to write another post very soon.

Thanks for dropping by and for your very welcome comments.

I think your bags look great Ro.
Love how your have made them. I know too about the time spent in creating, photographing, editing, loading onto Etsy etc. etc. I've been doing this pretty solidly now for several weeks and have virtually no time for anything else!
Love your studio companions!
Nice to have a bit less rain for while too!

It's frightening how quickly the time rushes by. Your bag is full of lovely warm summertime colours and I love your studio helpers! I bet their crimes go unpunished.

All your creations are so tasty but the sun printing really gets me the most. What you do with them inspires me. Hope you are happy and well. xo

Love the purse, all the gorgeous and rich colors, everything! Excellent work. Your studio companions are a treat to the eyes. Like someone else wrote, I bet their crimes go unpunished. I love your posts of your artwork.
