How's your sewing coming along? I see you managed to pry yourself away from the sewing machine and do a little blog hoppin'.
May I interest you in a little inspiration?
Here's project #1. I've had this idea dancing in my head for the past two weeks. First it was bear, then a rabbit and finally decided on a kitty. If you can see, I did a lace cut-out on the thought bubble. The technique was a lot easier than I anticipated. I just had to make sure to not make the bubble too big as it may dip down and expose unmentionables. Not that it's that big of a deal (at least not for me), but I don't want to offend anyone. Oh gosh no!
And look... look at the kitty...
See? It's a pocket!

Isn't this the cutest bag ever? Jan from Bikbik and Roro has the cutest stuff. I adore her tabby cat totes. If you haven't seen her works, you must pay a visit. Her shop is HERE and her wonderful blog is over HERE.
The pattern I used is from this lovely book.
You can find the book HERE.
To make things easy, I painted the face versus hand stitching or appliqué. I already spent more time on this project than I wanted to.
So one project down and on to the next!
P.S., Does sewing for a teenager count on KCW? Anyone know?
