It's All About Marie

This week, I'm working on Marie inspired projects.

Big surprise, huh?

I made this jewelry pouch for a swap.

I'm not a seamstress, so I was a little nervous
about doing this swap, but I love a challenge.

I stitched a pretty, lacy hankie to the inside.

Then added a little satin rose and a gold heart.

I'm actually quite pleased with the way it turned out.

I've also been working on ATC's
for another swap. I think I've gotten
hooked on these little things.

That's it for today.

I've got a crown to create!

Debi, i think you need to revise your opinion about not being a seamstress...that jewelry pouch you made is a stunner!!!

Pam Kellogg said...

I agree with Lori, your pouch is quite lovely! Everything is beautiful as always!

Debi - for someone who can't sew - YOU DID WONDERFULLY! That's what we all have to do - just jump in feet first and hold on for the ride. Because once we try something new - you just never know where it's going to take us! I just love this. But . . . I love everything you create!
I still haven't tried an ATC. ONce I get back from Savannah, I only have one swap to get going on - which I am REALLY looking forward to, and then - I'm going to settle down and learn about these little gems.
What a wonderful way to just have a quick little project!
I will miss you - I leave tomorrow morning . .. YAY and AM SO EXCITED - haven't slept for 3 nights!
I will "see" you when I get back!
Have a great week!
:) Karen
