Several weeks ago Wendi Gratz of Shiny Happy World started a project that she called Finished Stitches. In the course of years designing embroidery patterns, she had accumulated quite a few finished projects. So she offered to give them away to her loyal blog followers. The only thing that she asked was that recipients make the piece into a "finished something." For the cost of shipping I nabbed one of her projects. She plans to award prizes and one of the prizes will be for Fan Favorite. The voting started on Wednesday and so far I'm not doing too well. So if you love me and want to vote for my project this is the link. And no matter how cool you think that baby mobile is, be strong.
I made my piece into a tote bag. I know, not that original. But I gave myself a challenge...no new fabric. So this tote is made from corduroy and upholstery scraps that I had in my stash. The only thing that I bought to finish the project was fusible fleece...cool stuff. I used this pattern. The first time I used it I received a compliment...and I am quite fond of it....so all is good.
