I layered a lovely green batik with a piece of batting and a backing
and set up my machine for quilting.
After quilting the fabric, I cut it into pieces for a small purse.
I adapted the directions from quilting instructor Wendy Rieves' pattern
for "Wendy's Essentials Purse".
I used the batik for the back of the purse.
The front was cut from a hand-dyed fabric.
There was a soft image on the hand-dyed that I enhanced
with quilting and then added the beading.
Now I have the perfect little bag to match my wardrobe.
My walls won't be the only thing with a new spring look.
