Paua Bag Finished

For those of you who admired my paua-inspired foundation piecing, here it it is made up into a tote bag. Side one:

And the other side:

Adhering to my resolution NOT to buy more fabric for these bags, I used some synthetic lilac fabric that was lurking in my stash (from my experimentation with fabric crayons that do not work on 100% cottons) for the lining. After sewing with cottons so long, working with the synthetic fabric was truly horrible. Never again.

On the subject of man-made fibres, Jacqueline's collection of acrylic knitted tea cosies brought a smile to my face. The owl is especially quirky.

Wow! I covert the bag, the colours are delicious they blend so well, your the sort of relative/friendI'd like to have to get Christmas gifts from.

beautiful. love those colors. I think its a great way to use up scraps, I may take a crack at it with my own pile of odds and ends. (you know the itty bits that are just big enough to save for well for something just like that)
