hello sewing machine..

 For some reason lately I have been drawn to the sewing machine. A while back I picked up a little change purse clasp and wanted to make something with it. I decided on a little denim bag that would just hold my phone and some change and added a little flower applique to it. This was a learning experience and I'm not sure that I like the holes for sewing on the outside of the clasp. There was a bit of manipulating to get the fabric to fit properly. Not sure if I would like to make more or not. I would have to do it a little differently some how and I also think it needs a little handle of some kind. Still trying to figure out what to do about that.

 A trip to Michael's craft store ended up with this yarn. Of course it was on sale.Tthis yarn was exactly what I had in mind for a market bag.

I like your applique flowers!

I might have to go check out that recycled cotton at Michael's. Haven't seen it there before.
