    Test run for more than 1-pic

    I have just completed this shoulder bag for a work colleagues birthday gift. She asked for pink and a butterfly. Hope she likes it. I used curtain fabric which was of a linen type, and Osnerg.

    The pattern is from a magazine called The Magic Patch and it was originally made in Denim with Red Oil Cloth sections together with red stripe patches. I inserted a fabric divide to give 2 pockets as there were none at all in the pattern. I appliqued the butterfly on my Janome 1100 and used crystals to enhance the design.

    Hi Viv, I am sure you are going to enjoy the look on her face when she opens her surprise.
    It looked GREAT in larger photo.
    Thanks for sharing.
