Giant Tucks

This weekend I finally got a chance to do some fun sewing.  I had been wanting to try a bag with some giant tucks (I think that’s what their called – if you know what they’re really called, let me know!)

BUT, they looked kind of plain, so I sewed them up on one side and added a flower.

This is the first fabric flower I’ve ever felt good enough about to post.  Yes, even with all the great flower tutorials out there, I’m flower challenged.

    I finally finished my quilt and got it to my mother on Mother’s Day. Thanks for being so encouraging. Now I’m on to try another one before I forget what I learned! :O)

    you’re definitively not ‘bag challenged’!!! What a great tote. Is it for you?

    I’m really into gray at the moment which is a bit strange given we’re goint towards summer..

    I don’t know what I love more; your fabric or your purse! It’s all lovely and your flower is brilliant. 🙂

    You don’t APPEAR to be fabric flower challenged. It looks great!

  22. 22 Kimberly May 18, 2007 at 12:10 am

    Oh yes, you are definitely flower challenged. And sewing challenged and blogging challenged and…. 😉 Is there anything you don’t do fabulously?!
