I've started a few sewing projects, but as it warms up, the great outdoors keeps calling "yoo-hoo" so I've been slow to actually finish anything. This dainty bag is one I started over a week ago and have been working on, bit by bit, in between all the real-life stuff that always takes the wheel. My starting point for this was an old pillowcase, part of a set my grandmother gave the Mister and I, as a wedding present after we were married. At first I stored these away wrapped in tissue, inside the scented box they came in and just admired them from time to time because I was afraid to use them. Eventually I succumbed and the cases are now shot with holes from years of use, bleach, and time, but I've managed to salvage the little 'Hers' monogram here for remembrance. The faded cotton toile worked beautifully with this I think. The rick-rack, daisy trim, and eyelot lace add a bit of confection to "tempt your senses" (hence the post title). And that candle, from Bistro, is quite lovely; Cranberry Citrus has been my favorite for awhile now.
