sometimes I just like to make things...
no plans, just make something.
while I was in Joann's the other day, I saw one of my favorite magazines,
so i had to buy it.
it just so happened to include a free kit
(as most every issue includes a free kit of some sort)
this one was for a little oil coth purse.
sweet, but I didn't want to use the oil cloth included....
(i'm crazy like that)
pretty, but I wanted something 'different'....
I opened the little kit package and took out the supplies:
I was thinking of something more like this...
using some of my beautiful, nubby, washed silk matka in a beautiful shade of mushroom....
so I sewed it up...
then I turned to my trusty threads...
...these are my Gutermann threads in my favorite colors ~
turned the little purse rights sides out ~
(a little wonky-looking, but hey....)
grabbed my scissors,
cut out some organic shapes from tiny scraps of wool
...and began freestylin' :)
I like to change out the colors of my threads to clash/compliment my wools
and I use a variety of simple stitches...
after a bit of staining, then attaching the purse clasp to the top,
...it is finished.
I'm happy with it...
plop in a few coins and save for a rainy day.
~ have a beautiful weekend my Friends!
