A bit of time spent in my sewing room this week. I started making Stephanie's Oak Park Bag last year. I am happy to say that is one more UFO completed! And look how cute it turned out!
I fussy cut a variety of frog fabrics for the patchwork on the sides.
Here's the other side.
I used denim for the bottom and straps and a lily pad fabric for the top.
I did change things up a bit. Instead of a button and tab closure, I decided to put in a zipper.
See my cute little froggie zipper pull.
Inside, I put a zippered pocket on one side and and an open patch pocket (per the pattern) on the other.
I can't wait to tote my frog purse around town. Thanks Stephanie for such a cute pattern!
On a different subject, I was browsing the Koala sewing cabinet website when I came across a monthly giveaway they were having. Well, lucky me won February's giveaway! I received via FedEx this morning this wonderful sewing machine trolley.
It's extra large and has a telescopic handle for easy transport. Of course I chose red, my favorite color. My other options were blue, silver and one other I can't remember.
They also included some needles and thread.
Now I can wheel my sewing machine to any sewing class in style!
By entering the contest I was also entered to win the big Kahuna of a prize--a Koala studio. How wonderful would it be if my luck held out and I won that too! A girl can dream can't she! Anyways, why don't you try your luck at winning something too!
