Glamour girl sewing


Over the weekend, I made a few things for swaps.  One thing I’m trying to get done is the pin-up girl/burlesque swap.  After finally finding some fantastic fabric, I finalised the pin-up girl swap.

And further to my embroidery obsession, I had a trial go using one of Floresita’s transfers.  I took a little bit of artistic license, but I think she turned out rather cute.  So I’m going to put her as the front panel on a little polka dot tote bag for one of my swap partners.

    the embroidery looks fantastic – well done. Can’t wait to see your finished product.

    Love the fabric and bag too.
