Do I need another tote bag?
I was very unsure of stitching with vinyl but will do so again if appropriate.
Loved using ready made handles for the first time.
The applique is actually a pocket, I would never of thought of this myself.
I resisted the urge to exchange fabrics or add any additional ones.
Also no beads. The metallic threads just had to be used however on the rickrack to give the piece a bit of punch.
I have in my collection of threads some silks that an old friend (now departed) gave me. This was over ten years ago and until now have not used. The orange/gold is a Pearsall stranded silk from England. I will definitely use this again may even have to buy some when I go to visit my birth country this summer.
