GIFTS I MADE FOR CHRISTMAS

Thought I would show you the clutch bag I made for my friend Gala for Christmas.  This is a pattern from the last Crazy Quilting magazine that Pat Winters put out.  If you haven't seen her magazines you should get some copies.  They are great!   Full of eye candy, great patterns and artists that show all kinds of fun things to do. 

 The girl shown here was also from Pat Winters.  I love olive green and purple.  My favorite colors.  The lace shown here is some that I painted just for this project.  I also dyed the ribbon.

The back was some material that I had, it was a sample.  But it worked fine.  I had so much fun making this little bag.  I want to make me a bag to carry my phone next.  And I must make one of Pat's BoHo bags.  That's when I can find some time.  Thank's for the pattern and the magazine Pat. 
This gift was made for another friend Brenda.  She saw one something like it in the Antique Mall, but it was a Christmas one so I made her one for all year.  It was made from an old shelf that had come apart.  It worked perfect. 

 I am always looking for these old door knobs and face plates.  They work on lots of things. 

Brenda was going to put this at her front door to welcome her friends.  I had fun painting this for her.  Hope she enjoys it.
So glad you stopped by.  Have a great day.

This turned out beautifully. Am currently working with green and purple, not colours I normally work with but am really liking them. Your stitching is lovely.
