I decided to join my two challenge projects~both are due in June 2010. Either I would finish both or neither one!
The Ben Franklin Challenge was to make a piece of fabric using Superior Threads Texture Magic (just one source I found when I Google Image Searched Texture Magic). One was to take this *new* fabric and create something from it. A few suggestions were a pillow, a tote bag or a purse. No directions were given or specified as *to what* the final product should be.
The Lake Country Challenge was to exchange *my* ugly fabric for *someone else's* ugly fabric. I used a little of the *new to me* ugly fabric in this quilt here. The remainder of the fabric was used in the Ben Franklin Challenge piece.
Here's what I made~I just got it back from the Fabric Gallery this afternoon. Yes~I had the grommets professionally installed as I wasn't sure that I would be able to *punch* through 4 layers of fabric, 2 layers of batting and 2 layers of Texture Magic!
It's a cinch sak...open and flat.
Cinched up and standing all on it's own.
Think I might use it as a backpack purse for awhile and *see* how I like it.
Feels good to be able to check another item (s!) off the
Spring *To Sew* List. :)
